Not much more than a statue that greets you as you exit the station - a good meeting point though. Nice when the illuminations happen, as he's surrounded by a giant pink peach. nice bit of history though.

It is an attractive statue, but not much else to it. If you are already at the station, worth a look.

I didn't even realize this was a tourist attraction-I lived in Okayama for a few months and walk past this all the time, but no one's ever really stopping to look at it. I don't even know if there's a sign.

Momotarō met and befriended the talking dog, monkey and pheasant depicted in the statue as he fought a band of demons. The statue is outside the Okayama Rail Station and offers a nice place to sit, people watch and wait for your train.

The "peach boy" Momotaro is erected just outside Okayama JR Station. It is a gathering place to wait for some body while you can sit around chatting or have a cup of drink around the area.
