This is a gigantic cedar clog/ sandal called “Geta” in Japanese. 
The height is 4.15 m, while the width is 2.1 m. 
It weighs about 1,000 kilograms.
It is displayed in Hita city which is a famous production of sandals.
You can image how big it is thanks to the regular sandals next to it in the photo above.

Geta is Japanese traditional wooden footwear and they are usually worn with bare feet.

Ipponba: one-support clogs /一本歯

There are unique clogs called “Ipponba” which feature one-support(see the photo above). 
For your information, the regular sandals have two-supports.
Ipponba will help to train your inner muscles.

Do you think you can walk properly with Ipponba or one-support clogs?
In fact, standing still in one-support clogs is more difficult than walking in one-support clogs.
