The Honorable Duck Butt of Sugamo
Yes, it’s exactly what it looks like: a giant, stuffed, fake fur duck butt enshrined in a hut.
Apparently, the Sugamo merchant’s association created a duck character named Sugamon as their mascot (sort of like Doraemon, only not blue and not a cat) and someone thought this giant model of its hindquarters would draw people to Koshinzuka Shopping Street like pigeons to statues. I couldn’t quite figure out just what people are supposed to do in the hut named “Sugamon’s Honorable Behind,” but the sign does say it’s okay to pet it.
