Statue of Gundam in Kami-Igusa
Animation-related companies stand close together in Kami-Igusa area. A statue of Gundam, a popular animation hero, was erected at Kami-Igusa Station in March 2008. Some fans are so moved when they see the divine beauty of the monument that they offer coins to it as they would offer them to gods at temples or shrines. It is certainly worth visiting. Officials say that they are planning various activities as an anime town.
