There is a road called Midōsuji in Ōsaka along which you can admire 29 bronze statues.
On the morning of the 25th, Ōsaka woke up to discover that 19 of those statues were wearing red dresses.
The dresses exactly matched the size of each statue. They were casual wear all dyed in red.
Further investigation revealed that a security camera filmed somebody (probably a woman) on a bicycle stopping by one of the statues and dressing her in about 40 seconds at 4 o’clock in the morning. She seems to wave at somebody when she’s leaving, so there may have been several “perpetrators”. This hypothesis seems likely since it took one hour to three town employees to undress all the statues.
The mayor said the statues had not been damaged, so you could not considerate it a crime. Moreover, he said it was a good publicity for the art event the city plans to hold along Midōsuji on September.
