General MacArthur in Kamiyamada?

2008.03.21: 長野に来る理由 Reasons to Come to Nagano

General Mac

At the hill behind Togura Kamiyamada Onsen, there is a History Museum that has become, err, historical itself. It closed its doors many moons ago, and most of the artifacts have moved on. There are a few interesting statues remaining, though, including ones of Chang Kai Shek and of this guy, General Douglas MacArthur. I had heard stories of him related to Zenkoji Temple in Nagano City, but it's somewhat bizarre seeing his statue here above our town!
