Momotaro (lit. Peach Boy) is a Japanese folk tale about an old lady who found a child floating down a river inside a giant peach (similar to how Pharoh’s daughter found Moses). The old lady and her husband named him Momotaro and raised him as their son. Later he goes off with a bunch of animal friends and fights demons.
This story is usually associated with Okayama and references to Momotaro can be found all over the city. There is a statue of him in front of the main train station and many of the souvenirs from Oakayama also reference the legend. But by far the strangest representation I have ever seen of Momotaro is the glass figurine I found in the bathroom of a ramen shop. The entire wall was covered with copies of the same strange figurine.
