Wordless Wednesday #27: The Original Kirin, Nagasaki


I spotted this statue when I was at Glover Garden in Nagasaki. According to the brochure, it was the model for the picture of the Kirin used on the logo for Thomas Blake Glover’s fledgling Japan Brewery Company, which eventually became the Kirin Brewery Company.

What do you think? See the resemblance?
