I came across this sculpture on my way to Takao from Noborito. It's in the rough vicinity of Hachioji. The bridge has other sculptures at the 3 other corners, but they're not as interesting as this one. It's weird, because this is not a major street, or a very big bridge. But it's got some of the more elaborate artwork in the area.
In the U.S., it would have taken maybe two weeks for this statue to be vandalized, and maybe 20 minutes before someone started calling the newspapers to complain about it.
