Girl in red shoes


The statue of Kimi Sano (“Girl in red shoes”) in Yokohama

She was born in 1902 in Shizuoka, Japan. She migrated to Hokkaido with her mother. She became American missionary's adopted daughter because their life was poor.

Her mother thought that she went to the United States. However, she died of tuberculosis in Tokyo in 1911.

Her mother didn't know that.
