Information from the Official guide 1915:

Nogeyamais fast growing in popularity as a residential quarter for well-to-do Japanese. The Iseyama Daijin-gu, a Shinto temple high up on the hill, commands a wide and fine prospect and is a popular resort with the people of the neighbourhood. The temple precincts contain a large number of cherry and maple-trees. On Iseyama stands the statue of Li Naosuke, the chief minister of Shogun lyemochi, who with indomitable will and far-seeing statesmanship proclaimed the opening of Japan amid the fierce turmoil of political enmity and in consequence met with a tragic death at the hands of assassins near Sakurada-mon, Tokyo, in i860. In grateful-remembrance of his valuable services the people of Yokohama erected this statue in 1910.
