Little Peeing Monk of Tokyo

Inspired by the famous Belgium statue Manneken Pis, urinating boy statues are popular in Japan and can be found in various locations. But the “the little peeing monk” of Hamamatsuchō Station in central Tokyo may be the most iconic of such imitations.

Originally gifted to the station by a dentist in 1952, it is famous for its extensive wardrobe, changing clothes every single month for over 30 years.
