Moai Statue, Miyazaki

Moai Statue, Miyazaki (StreetView)
On the hilltop of Nichinan Coastline in Miyazaki prefecture is the theme park "Sun Messe Nichinan." The park's key feature is seven replicas of Moai statues with their backs turned toward the Pacific Ocean, 15,000 kilometers removed from the originals on Easter Island, Chile.

The statues were created with the official permission of the Polynesian island, granted in thanks for the restoration efforts made by Japanese construction companies. Standing tall at 5.5 meters, the stone sculptures make a sharp contrast against the subtropical oceanfront.
