Peeing Boy Statue

Landmark in Nishi Iya

The Iya Valley's famous statue of a boy peeing into the gorge is turning 50! Put in place in 1968, 'Peeing Boy' has been photographed by countless visitors while urinating into the valley far below. This is supposedly what local boys did at this spot before 'Peeing Boy' was erected. Guaranteed to put a smile on every visitor's face.
