Copies of the Manneken Pis in Japan





Manneken Pis of Achinohe

Manneken Pis of Achinohe

Achinohe

This little boy who urinates in public is a copy of the famous Manneken Pis, but it is not a true copy, as the model is not quite identical. This statue is in the city of Achinohe, Japan.



Manneken Pis of Kobe

Manneken Pis of Kobe

Kobe

This statue, which dates from 1962, is, for once, not very faithful to the original. The little boy is less chubby, more realistic, and his hair is rather stiff. It is white stone and is perched on a structure that is similar to a succulent plant.

This seems normal since it is at the center of a pond in the Botanical Garden of Mount Rokko.



Manneken Pis of Kurumé

Manneken Pis of Kurumé

Kurumé

The city of Kurume also has a copy of the Manneken Pis. Here too it is not a perfectly identical copy, it is this little boy who urinates in public still looks good to the Belgian statue.

Manneken Pis at Tokyo

Tokyo

This small statue of Manneken Pis is quite original since it is ... on the platform of a Tokyo station!

This is the Hamamatsucho station. The statue is located between lanes 3 and 4. It is not alone, it is perched on a tall pedestal end, at the end of a small monument-fountain flower. There is a plaque accompanying it is written all in Japanese. And the height of curiosity, this statue is smaller than the original: 46cm only, instead of 55.5 standard!
