I saw the duck last October in Nakanoshima park, a very picturesque place. This year however he was out by some wasteland in the dock area which seemed like a strange choice, as there was nothing much nearby.

In front of the duck was a huge art installation featuring loads of black-and-white animal cutouts, very surreal!

Once again, rubber duck replica’s are available for ¥1000. Every hour only 50 are being made available for sale, 3000 are available for sale in total, I couldn’t resist getting another so I have a pair!

I guess I’m a real sucker for limited editions…

If you want to see the duck in Osaka this year, you best hurry – today(the 18th) will be his final day here before he continues on his adventures! Map below, I rode over but the closest station is Awaza.

    I know you are actually there, but the cement statues look like they are badly photoshopped on!
