World’s largest rice scoop!! According to the interpretative panel mounted next to it: This is the biggest rice scoop in the world, and was made by Miyajima Town as a symbol of Miyajima, birthplace of the rice scoop, and to hand down the traditional handicraft of wood carving to future generations…Today, it is regarded as a lucky ornament which scoops up happiness, good fortune, and victory, as well as being practically useful. Unclear on where the practically useful part comes in.
