Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto's Boots, Nagasaki

3.1
Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto's Boots commemorates the famed and visionary Japanese imperial loyalist, who yearned for a modernized and unified Japan where all people were equal. The memorial's focus on his boots presumably comes from Ryoma's penchant for wearing traditional samurai garb with Western-style shoes, a fitting symbol of his ideals. You'll have to walk a fair distance to reach the statue, so bring plenty of water for the hike. Once reached, the destination makes a good observation point, looking out over the city and toward the mountains beyond.

  • We were walking up the stairs around the area looking for something else and stumbled on this, was a nice surprise. Nagasaki is very hilly and can take its toll.  more »
  • There is a vending machine to buy a drink next to this place! :) it wasn't that hard to find using a map and phone. You can't see the harbour though.  more »
