I really did not know until I looked it up, this is what I found:

The French Statue of Liberty came to Odaiba, the beach area of Tokyo since April 1998 until May 1999 in commemoration of "The French year in Japan". Because of its popularity, in 2000, a replica of the French Statue of Liberty was erected at the same place. Also in Japan, a small Statue of Liberty is in the Amerika-mura (American Village) shopping district in Osaka, Japan. Another replica is located near the town of Shimoda south of Misawa, Japan where the United States has a U.S. Air Force base with 8,000 military members. This replica is located on the same latitude as the original statue in New York.

Also: The Statue of Liberty Park or Icho Park is home to Japan's largest Statue of Liberty. Even larger than the on in Tokyo.

Thank you for the information - that's really interesting, I didn't even know that a replica of the statue exists
