People look at a sand sculpture of characters from the late Shotaro Ishinomori’s popular classic manga “Cyborg 009” in front of the Ishinomori Mangattan Museum in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture.

A sand sculpture featuring characters from the late Shotaro Ishinomori’s classic manga “Cyborg 009” has been built in front of the Ishinomori Mangattan Museum in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture.

The museum displays works by Ishinomori, native to the prefecture.

The sand monument is approximately 3 meters high, 4 meters wide and 3 meters deep. It features the nine main cyborg characters from the manga, including the main character, Joe Shimamura, and his cohort, Francoise.

The monument was completed in two weeks by sand artist Toshihiko Hosaka, using approximately 50 tons of sand, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the manga’s serialization. It will be on display until March next year.
