Childhood - Teen Years
The monument stands on his birthplace in Hashicho, Wakayama City.
Kumagusu showed no interest in the lectures at Preparatory School of Tokyo University. He spent his time conducting research in the suburbs on his own. It was in this period that he was determined to become a great scholar like botanists Moses A. Curtis and Miles J. Berkeley and that he set his heart on a career as a naturalist.
