Kenji Miyazawa Monument

Ichinoseki City

Southern Iwate

In 1930, Kenji was invited to work as an engineer at a limestone factory in Higashiyama Town, but due to overwork he was sick in bed. In later years, young men who admired Kenji erected a monument in Niiyama Park that reads, ``First, we will all become the shining dust of the universe and be scattered across the endless sky.''
