OT: What’s Special About This Picture?

Hi folks, I just came back from a long ski weekend in Akita, and when I arrived at one train station in the area I came across a very strange thing… I took my DSLR and shot this photo for you, can anyone pinpoint what’s so special about it, or what’s SO strange?

    I have NO Ideas, but in Japan, such thing is not so uncommon, there is for example a Festival in Kawasaki Each year with huge Penis figurine, Ice Cream and so on… Basically this is a ceremony and festival where priest bless people who desire to get babies.
