Kochikame Statues at Kameari, Tokyo

Kochikame(*) is a long-running popular comedy manga and anime in Japan. The manga has been serialized since 1976 with over 1700 chapters. It is the longest-running manga series in history.

The story is set in Kameari, Katsushika Ward, Tokyo. Around Kameari Station, you can find several bronze statues of Kankichi Ryotsu, or Ryo-san, the main character of the story, and a few other supporting characters.

*The formal title of Kochikame is 'Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Koen Mae Hashutsujo' which literally means 'This is the police box in front of Kameari Park in Katsushika Ward', but it is usually called by the shortened name.
