Saigō Takamori Statue

Near the main entrance to the park from JR station stands an unassuming statue of a pudgy man walking his dog. This is Saigō Takamori, a famous ``samurai`` general best known for leading the doomed Satsuma Rebellion against the Meiji government (and the inspiration for Hollywood blockbuster ``The Last Samurai``). These days, it`s the canonical place for meeting people at the park.

A Spot Known Only by the Locals
A spot to remember. We felt we were diving into the cultural heritage of Japan mesmerized by the beauty of the locality. The spot was a unique place bustling with the local population. We had a wonderful time!
