Godzilla at Night

Posted in Places by tokyobling on July 24, 2014

If you happen to be in or around Tokyo’s Midtown in Roppongi you might be interested in seeing the (very) short light show at the Godzilla statue on display until the end of August. Every hour and half hour from 1900, for a couple of minutes, smoke, light and scary roaring is turned on, much to the enjoyment of the (mostly kids) people there to see it. As I was crouched down in front of the statue during the show it was actually difficult to hear the sound effects over the noise of the excited kids screaming in unison with the great beast herself, or at least the 6.6m tall scale model.

Tokyo Midtown is easy to reach on the Toei Oedo subway line, Roppongi station, or the Hibiya line Roppongi station or even the Nogizaka station on the Chiyoda line.
