The creative people at the Shinjuku Takashimaya Department Store (2nd floor) created this to mark the opening of Tokyo’s new Fukutoshin subway line. Created by creative individuals from Takashimaya and other Shinjuku-area businesses, the work depicts Astro Boy, Uran, Professor Ochanomizu and Higeoyaji (Mr. Mustachio) in Shinjuku along with the new Fukutoshin train.
It measures 3.2 x 2.1 meter (10 x 7 ft) and is made from approximately 138,000 recycled Tokyo Metro tickets.
