The Statue of Florence Nightingaleフローレンス ナイチンゲール像

Other Historic Site/Building

"It's next to Eikon-ji Temple Remnants Historical Park along the railroad tracks to the west of Kawanishi-noseguchi Station. Deeply moved by this nurse's commitment while being cared for in a Japanese Red Cross Hospital, Nakayama Tsuyu, the owner of the land, had this statue made in 1936. It's modeled after the image that stands at the entrance to The Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery at St. Thomas Hospital in London, making it only the second of its kind. The phrase "" Kanzeon to relieve the sufferings of the people "" is engraved on the pedestal, sending a message of benevolence and love for humanity. It's a popular spot for students studying to be nurses, and a festival to mark Florence Nightingale's birthday is held every May. "

Hyogo Main Areas


Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
