エルヴィス・プレスリー

Only 3 offical statues of Elvis Presley in the world!

"The statue of Elvis Presley was created from donations made from many of the fans around the world.
The statue has been visited by some notable people, such as Reiko Yurikawa, the former Prime Minister, Junichiro Koizumi, Hirao Masaaki, Jon Bon Jovi, and others.
Originally, the statue was in Tokyo, at the rock character specialty store, ""Love Me Tender"" at Harajuku Takeshita-dori. However, due to the closing down of the store, there was a need for a new location for the statue.
Kobe was chosen as the best candidate, as it is known for its love for music and is considered the origin of jazz in Japan.
The new ""Kobe Harborland"" by the waterfront was decided as the new home for the Elvis Presley statue and arrived to Kobe on August 7th, 2009."
