Totoro at the bus stop!

totoro statueSankai -- A 43-year-old man, who goes by the name of Yamamichi Yoshiyuki, erects a statue of the famous Hayao Miyazaki character Totoro of the My Neighbor Totoro fame.

The umbrella-carrying statue stands alone at a local bus stop.

The statue is made of boat cushioning, wood scraps and polystyrene. Totoro's purpose? "To improve the image of the area."

It's really cool because the woody background plus the bus stop makes it a picturesque scene taken right out of the anime.

What time will the Neko-Bus arrive?
