2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth


Let's kill us some barbarians!One of the “Iki legends” is that, many many years ago, there was an ogre… or barbarian… or demon.. (or foreigner!) that was killing a bunch of Iki people and making them miserable in general.  Luckily, a king appeared and destroyed the dirty ogre!  HUZZAH!  And somehow this has turned into a famous Iki tale and pictures and statues of it is everywhere.

This is in downtown Gounoura, about a five minute drive from my house.

  1. Looks like a foreigner to me! I’m interested in the truth behind the myth 🙂 There’s always something that inspires a legend like that and it would be interesting to see what it was.
