Japan is Welcoming to Photographers

Any idea what this is? I came across it in the garden at our hotel in Hakone, Japan, and had never seen anything like it.

Well, it's a monopod, set permanently in a concrete base, in the optimum spot for a travel shot in the garden. Well, of course, I couldn't resist. I mounted the LX7 up, set the self-timer, and made this shot with my lovely wife.

This reminds me of the Kodak Photo Spot campaign of years back, but it's not a commercial. It's simply a very nice feature that the hotel added to the garden.
