A Little Girl with Red Shoes On

This bronze statue of a little girl wearing red shoes was created by Masamichi Yamamoto in 1979. It represents the child in a song called "Akai Kutsu" (Red Shoes) by Ujo Noguchi, a Japanese poet, which was based on the true story of a Japanese girl adopted by an American couple who were due to take her to America with them. However, at the last moment she was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Fearing she would not withstand the journey, she was left in a church orphanage where she died in 1911. The figure sits gazing out to sea, presumably musing over the journey and future she missed out on. -AH

It is positioned opposite the real location of the first ice cream shop in Japan, started by Fusazo Machida who was a member of the first delegation to visit the United States of America.

For the first ten years of business, Machida had to bring natural ice from Hokkaido for his handmade ice cream process. -AH

The Grave of Minamoto Yoritomo

Minamoto no Yoritomo was the first shogun of the Kamakura shogunate, and as such holds an important place in Kamakura's history. He raised an army against the Taira Clan, which had slain his father. The monument that marks his grave was built in the Edo period, at least 400 years after his death, so it unknown whether his remains are included in the Buddhist stone stupa and fenced area of sacred soil. When Yoritomo died in 1199 he was buried in his own temple, Hokkedo, which was later destroyed, moved and rebuilt. Traces of it remain on the hillside. -AH
