If there was any doubt that the Tetsujin 28 monument is going to kick ass, consider this: his head is the smallest part. The 18m (59ft) monument is being built in Kobe, the birthplace of Tetsujin 28’s creator, Mitsuteru Yokoyama. Its unveiling in Wakamatsu park, Nagata ward, is part of the revitalization efforts that are still ongoing after the Kobe earthquake in 1995. Located just a few minutes from the Shin-Nagata station, the statue will reflect the town’s building spirit. It is expected to be completed in late October 2009.
