I rode a bike to Shin-Nagata station in cool early morning.
It's too hot to play sports during the daytime.
This monument is "Tetsujin 28-go" (literally "Iron Man #28") in front of Shin-Nagata station in Kobe.
Originally, it was the serialized comic which was written by Mitsuteru Yokoyama during 1955-1964 .
It was hugely popular, it was made into live-action version drama and TV animation later.
It was later released in America as "Gigantor".
Mr. Yokoyama was born in Kobe.
