Some of the stuff we post on Instagram here in the U.S. could be considered odd, but it really doesn’t hold a candle to posting pictures of your baby with a peach for a butt.

That’s what’s happening in Japan right now if you check out the 桃尻 hashtag, which is Japanese for peach butt. It looks like one mom snapped a pic as an entry for a contest held by Japanese photography company Kodomono Photo (the theme is memorable photos of children).

Ladies and gentlemen, the beauty of Japan in full bloom. May you cherish it.
