This topic is about styrofoam figure.
You can find various cute animals when you’re walking around Kawagoe City.
These animals are nearly as tall as human beings and look just like the real animals.
These animals are made out of styrofoam varnished to protect them from the rain.
It is interesting that these animals exist not only in public spaces such as public museums and roads but also in private space such as gardens of a house and shop.
I don’t know whether these figures fit into the cityscape
but I saw many people going close to them and taking a photo.
The man making these figures had worked at Kawagoe City Hall until two years ago.
He retired around fifty to make these figures.
I guess that he can’t live easily just by making these figures.
However, he seems happy that he can do only what he wants to do.
I envy his way of living and I want to plan for early retirement.
