I wonder how long the photographer had been hanging around there to get that shot.

The real Statue of Liberty faces outward, toward the ocean.

The Japanese replica faces inward, away from the ocean.

This photo is invasion of privacy!

Doing stretches on your balcony like that isn't exactly private is it!

Voyeuristic photo.

Haha, same here. Bloke probably thought 'someone in her yoga pants will do for mainstream media, undies/nothing for 'other' mags (or private collection if no takers). Better make sure the SoL is in though, ppl don't question arty shots'

Actually many people confuse the Odaiba statue as being a replica of the actual NYC statue, but it's actually a replica of the French Île aux Cygnes' statue, which was located in Odaiba in the late 90s. The statue returned to France, but due to popularity, a replica of the Île aux Cygnes statue was made and placed in Odaiba.

Interestly the Île aux Cygnes statue itself is a scaled replica of the NYC statue built in the United States and given to France as a gift, which in trivia, the big NYC statue was built in France and given to the United States.

The statue in NYC is facing in a southeasterly directly, so is the Odaiba replica.

Actually, the Statue of Liberty isn't in NYC, or for that matter in New York state.

It's in New Jersey. (I live only 10 minutes from the Liberty State Park in Jersey City.)

でも, どうしてお台場に自由の女神を建てたんでしょう?
