This was floating in the Okawa River, near Hakkenyahama pier (Tenmabashi station area). A huge duck. I’m not really sure why, to be honest.

The city has been doing a lot of urban renewal efforts focused on Osaka’s rivers, and I suppose this is one of them.

This site has some great pictures of the duck.

      You know, after about a half-second of shock at seeing a duck the size of a house, the same thought ran through my head :)

    I totally saw pics of this duck on Cute Overload! I think it has been travelling the world…although it does seem pretty Japanese in general. ;)

    Heh – it was part of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s project.
