Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall

Octagon-shaped Chinese building in Maiko Park

On a sunny day in October 2014, I spent the whole day in Hyogo Prefectural Maiko Park, to join the 'Great Akashi Strait Bridge World Tour (to climb to the top of the bridge)'. I was here from morning till late night just looking at this bridge. However, it wasn't just the bridge I saw here.

There was clear blue sky and blue ocean, and also this fascinating building, 'Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall' to see. This Chinese building is dedicated to Sun Yat-sen, the 'Father of Xinhai Revolution'.

Although I don't know much about Sun Yat-sen, despite the current foreign diplomacy and political situation, only a selfless, true revolutionary like him can be called a great person worthy of respect. That must have been the reason why there were many people in Japan who supported him.
