Peace Memorial Statue

Peace Memorial Statue
Seibo Kitamura, 1989
Bronze sculpture on a granite plinth

This statue was a gift to the City of Burlington from the City of Itabashi, Japan to commemorate the twinning of the two cities. It is a replica of an original statue created by the late Seibo Kitamura, one of Japan’s most prominent sculptors. The original sculpture is seven metres high and is located at the entrance of Itabashi City Hall. Kitamura’s son Haruyoshi supervised the casting of the Burlington statue and the granite base was created by Woodland Memorials. In May of 1989 the City of Burlington signed a twinning agreement with the City of Itabashi. In the following years, various exchanges and programs have been carried out and relations between the cities have flourished.
