This is a statue of the famed samurai commander, Sanada Yukimura, who led the pro-Toyotomi forces against the Tokugawa during the Siege of Osaka in 1614-1615. This statue can be found on the grounds of the Sankō Shrine next to Sanadayama Park in Osaka. The area is where the Sanada-maru defensive position stood during the Winter Siege of Osaka.
