In the grounds of Kochi castle. Yamauchi Kazutoyo was the feudal lord of the Tosa region of Shikoku in the early 1600s. He had Kochi castle built.

Love the statue, the way light plays on it makes it almost look alive. I would rather have no background than the one made of naked branches....but I know that this was the location and it couldn't be helped!
