Chapter 941: Satsuma Retainers Monument (薩摩義士碑)

Satsuma Retainers Monument (薩摩義士碑) is another historical stop you can visit in Kagoshima. This is the memorial place of 80 people from the Satsuma clan who sadly lost their lives during the water flood control works in the Gifu Prefecture which refers to the Horeki River incident (宝暦治水事件) On the very top, in the middle, is the retainer of Chief Hirata Yukie who was appointed to be responsible for the project. An interesting fact is, when you turn around you will see that this memorial is facing the direction of Sakurajima.
