Whilst looking up the name of the little pissing boy statue for my Brussels blog entry I was quite surprised to discover that there is actually one here in Tokyo. It’s on the platform of Hamamatsucho station on the JR Yamanote line and is probably unknown to many of the thousands and thousands of people who pass through the station each day.
I went there last Friday whilst travelling by that station on my way to the Radiohead event-that-never-happened. It can be found right down the end of the platform for the trains running in a clockwise direction. Unlike the Belgian one this one is regularly dressed up in all manner of outfits with the latest one displaying a scarf and hat.
