Life Size Model of Blue Whale in Ueno Park


This gigantic model is displayed outside of The National Museum of Nature and Science that is located in the east part of Ueno Park.
It is a model of female blue whale.
After breathing deeply, she is about to dive into the undersea.

I can't help but think it looks small! I wonder why...
I wonder if the whales in HEP 5 in Osaka are to scale... o.O

A good way to show to visitors how big and impressive, and beautyful, a whale can be!
