It is a photo tour of major and minor statues found in Japan. Here we go!
Mizukake Fudo at Hozen-ji Temple in Osaka. The stone statues are covered in moss because visitors throw water on them as a ritual.
Gold Statue at the head office of Asahi Beer. It is a flame symbolizing the company’s upswing heart. Contrary to the beautiful meaning, it is often mistaken as excrement.
Statue titled “Huge Brilliance” near the Lake Biwa Canal in Kyoto, Japan. It depicts a carpenter who made the canal.
7.7-meter stone statue of Kitaro from GeGeGe no Kitaro. Holding a crab, he stands in front of a fish market in Sakaiminato, Tottori Prefecture.
Godzilla in front of Toho Hibiya Building (Hibiya Chanter) in Yurakucho, Tokyo. This statue was installed on December 5, 1995 on the occasion of the final Heisei series Godzilla movie, Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.
Detective Conan Statue in Daieicho, Tottori Prefecture.
Statue of Iwaki from a manga series Dokaben. He always has a twig with two leaves in his mouth LOL.
