Yellow Hand & Ninomiya Sontoku, Takamori 高森 阿蘇

Yellow Hand & Ninomiya Sontoku, Takamori 高森 阿蘇
A new artist's workshop is now located in a former elementary school, so there's a new "Yellow Hand" statue in front of the traditional Ninomiya-reading-while-working statue.

Ninomiya Sontoku lived in the late Edo period and developed a philosophy where agriculture was man's ultimate achievement because it was using resources granted by the gods. He is famous for being an orphan who studied on his own while simultaneously working. I have no idea about the large yellow hand.
