Godzilla in Roppongi Midtown

Posted in Places by tokyobling on July 22, 2014

Tokyo finally got a slightly larger Godzilla statue last week, due to the promotion of the latest Godzilla move. A smallish statue has been erected in the Tokyo Midtown’s park, and it is open to the public from morning to night every day, with a very short smoke and light show at night (pictures from that to come later on!).

You might have seen the smaller bronze Godzilla in Hibiya or even been to the actual spot where Godzilla fist steps onto Japanese soil in what is today Kitashinagawa, but if you are a real fan of the big beast you have to go and see the statue in Roppongi Midtown. Fittingly, there’s a Baccardi bar garden just next to it where you can stretch your legs, sip something cool and imagine the roar of the beast.

    And to think that area was an ice skating rink in the winter…

    This is much cooler! (no pun intended)

    That is awesome! Do you know how long will this one, and the Hibiya one, be displayed?

        It runs away on my birthday, how fitting! And another 6 coincidence — I keep wanting to caption pic #6. Something like, “I thought these humanoids would be tasty! Blech!” 😀

    Reblogged this on Scylax of Caryanda and commented:
    I had an Airfix model of Godzilla when I was young. Something tells me it even glowed in the dark :/ Can’t really remember. This one is awesome.
