Saigo Takamori Statue Reviews
リッチモンドホテル鹿児島金生町に宿泊していたのでホテルから歩いて西郷隆盛像に行きました。ホテルからまっすぐ進むと5分ほどで着きました。近くには照国神社や天文館など徒歩圏内なので一緒に観光することをお勧めします。 more »I stayed at Richmond Hotel Kagoshima Kinsei-cho, so I walked from the hotel to Takamori Saigo statue. It took about five minutes to get there straight from the hotel. It is recommended to go sightseeing together because it is within walking distance such as Terukuni Shrine and Astronomical Museum.
市内街の中にありました、車の通りの多いところなので歩きの方が便利かと思います。 今も鹿児島の行く末を見守るかのように、城山を背に鎮座していました。 more »I think that it is more convenient to walk because there are a lot of streets of the car in the city. I still sat with Shiroyama in my back as if I were watching the future of Kagoshima.
This #saigotakamori statue at the #centralpark of #Kagoshima is quite a picturesque landmark. He is a local hero who led the movement that ended feudalism in Japan. #discoverkagoshima #discoverjapan #traveljapan #japantravel #tourjapan #japantour #japanrailpass #jrpass #shinkansen #japan #letsguide #LocalGuides
