This golden monument of a catfish, a symbol of Yoshikawa City, sits proudly in the middle of the rotary by the south exit of Yoshikawa Station on the JR Musashino Line. It welcomes visitors to Yoshikawa City, which is promoting itself as the "home of the catfish." It was created by Kazumi Murose, a lacquer artist considered to be a "living national treasure," and it was installed on the 9th of May in 1995.
