He is well known in Japan for his determination to become a medical scholar, by overcoming his disability with his burnt hand. He was from Fukushima Prefecture. Nobody seemed to know why his statute was in Ueno Park.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
