Statues of Kagoshima

Find historical figures in every part of the city

Kagoshima takes a lot of pride in its prominent role in Japanese history, and has become better known domestically with the success of national TV drama shows about figures such as the samurai politician Ryoma Sakamoto and Shogun's wife Atsuhime. It seems that around every corner there's a statue of a historical figure or other local worthy, and many of them have English explanations so we can see what role they played in the region's past. Even if you have no interest in the history, however, they add a lot of charm and character to the city.
