Philippine National Hero Bust at Hibiya Park, Tokyo

Bronze bust of Dr. Jose Rizal 🇵🇭❤️🇵🇭on the perimeter trail at Hibiya Park next to the Imperial Palace. This was added (during the 1998 Centennial Anniversary of Philippine Independence) to the 1961 historical marker on the site of the Tokyo Hotel, where Rizal stayed in 1888 before heading to Europe.


Upon exiting the Hibiya Line following “Hibiya Park” exit, it was less than 5 mins walk from the train station street entrance. .

Thank you Atty. @melvavaldez for posting this on your last trip that made me put it on my Tokyo wish list! I only realised after going home that there is also an Elpidio Quirino Monument! (For next trip Lord willing).
