Photo Journal: Huge hit?

A huge "Pinky Duck" balloon is seen at the amusement facility Nasu Rindoh-ko Lake View in the town of Nasu, Tochigi Prefecture, on April 29, 2018. The facility hopes the duck will become a popular photo spot for use on Instagram and other social media. The balloon, made from rubber, is 20 meters high, 16 meters wide and weighs 2 metric tons. After it was inflated, water was added to its base to help maintain its balance, while ropes were used to secure it in strong winds. The object is larger than the Great Buddha of Nara. (Mainichi)
