My biggest cringe was saved for the replica statue of David.For some reason its BLACK!! Why?

Having seen the real one in Florence with my own eyes I can vouch its an off white pasty marble color.
Unfortunately the statue is placed on a pedestal out of hands reach. But I swear its plastic.

Im just glad I didnt have to pay the 1000 yen entrance fee payable on weekends and national holidays.
The place is definitely worth a look.Not for the pricey shops and food but rather as an insight as to how some Japanese perceive Italy.
