SontokuSo here's one of the statues of Kinjiro Ninomiya, also known as Sontoku, which I mentioned on May 27 in "In the company of Naked Men and Children". Often depicted reading a book while carrying a bundle of firewood - remember to be diligent, frugal and virtuous.
While I was taking a photo for my kana project, some preschool teachers from the neighbouring daycare centre came in pushing these prams for the little itty-bitty kiddies to have a look at the school chickens. There were four prams all up. And notice how she has another kids strapped to her back!
