KYOEI man stands in front of a pachinko parlor in Gintengai Mall in the heart of Matsuyama. Pachinko is mind numbing to say the least. The places are extremely loud and will overload your senses if you happen to step inside.
This statue has been in front of this pachinko parlor for a long time. Fortunately it is no longer there.
