seems they did a nice job carving the rock; but couldn't it be just a bit bigger or is the town of naruto really that small?

Hmm... they might have a budget to think about. I'm no big fan, but it's still pretty cool.

It looks a heck of a lot better than it does in the anime. They did a great job. I'd be a proud nerd to get my picture taken next to it.

Blog Topless Robot compared this to the town of Metropolis Illinois latching onto Superman as its icon. Both are a little bit sad.

Also, I'm not sure if a friend of mine went here in a recent trip or just found some other promo material for the new Naruto movie. I know he got one of the fliers pictured.

That's just fiberglass or something, right? I doubt that roof could support a real stone sculpture that size.

above a local government building.


As neat as this is, I really don't think I'd be able to take my job seriously after that.

It's a good replica but somehow.. it's kinda out of place Confused I mean, on top of a government buidling?

But I really like the sculpture Very Happy I would die a happy person when I see this in real life xD
