Photographer's Note

On the Way to Narita Airport I had a little extra time so I stopped to photograph this peeing boy. I'm always seeing him from the train on the JR line but regret that I'm usually too busy to get off and photograph him.

Every month someone dresses him up in a different outfit, Santa, Shogun, yukata and so on. This started back in 1955 when on a cold day a young boy put a cap on the nude peeing boy. Then a woman started making clothes for him until her death in 1985. Since then many people have loved and taken care of him.

I wanted to have the train in motion in the background. I took several photographs and chose this picture because he was framed by the train window.
