A lovely little statue.

This is a lovely little statue that carries a lot of local sadness with it, as it is the theme of an early 20th century poem about a little girl being taken away by a foreigner.

The statue of the girl with red shoes in Yamashita Park will get noticed by anybody who enter the park. This represents one of the most famous songs in Japan which is based on a true story.

The statue is not nearly as big as I expected. It is probably life size, though. In a beautiful park. Sad story. If you don't already know the story, don't ask.
