キャプテン翼・ロベルト本郷と大空翼像

Description

A statue of characters from the popular soccer comic series, Captain Tsubasa (Flash Kicker). Yoichi Takahashi, author of the series, is from Yotsugi, Katsushika and a graduate of Minami Katsushika High School. This is one of eight bronze statues planned for a new sightseeing spot. In the story, Hongo Robert is main character Tsubasa Ozora's former teacher. He is Japanese-Brazilian and former player number 10 on the Brazilian team. He has retired due to a detached retina; suffering from this, he tried to commit suicide but was saved by Ozora’s father. This motivated him to teach soccer to Tsubasa Ozora. The statue is located on Medakanoko-michi trail, about a seven-minute walk from Yotsugi Station on the Keisei Line.
