Meet Chibatman - bringing smiles to the streets of Japan

1 September 2014 Last updated at 15:23 BST

The city of Chiba in Japan, has a new hero, but this is a hero with a difference.

For the past three years, Chibatman has been spotted flying through the streets of Chiba on his custom three-wheeled Chibatpod.

Like his similar-looking comic book hero Batman, the 41-year-old, who works as a welder during the day, keeps his identity closely-guarded.

But like the Dark Knight, the reason he keeps putting on his cape is just simply to make the people of the city happy.
