Wacky statue is symbol of restoration
Many people know that Kobe was hugely damaged by the 1995 Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, but far less people know that Nagata ward was one of the worst hit. This huge statue of Tetsujin acted as a focal point for the restoration of the area and promised to breathe a new lease of life into the surrounding area. That may not have happened, but it is still well worth a visit if you are in Nagata and want to get a great photo of something you don't see every day.
