Giant Chickens Invade Japan ?!

31 Jan

Whilst driving along a local road in the village of Yamato, I spied a huge white chicken egg sitting on a hill in the distance. I figured that my eyes were playing up, or was wondering if I was beginning to suffer the first strains of the dreaded bird flu ? Nope, the giant white egg was in fact real. Well in a sense. Many local artists are currently displaying their works of art around this region, and this piece is just one of them. Yikes, it’s cracked ! Back in the car fast me thinks ! If you’re game, Yamato is located in Sakuragawa, Ibaraki Prefecture.
