Godzilla's Head in Shinjuku

(0 votes, average: 0 out of 5)

Godzilla Head is a landmark and tourist attraction in Kabukichō, Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan.

The sculpture is accessible from Hotel Gracery Shinjuku’s Godzilla Terrace, on the Shinjuku Toho Building. It depicts Godzilla, occasionally with “glowing eyes and smoky breath”.

The 80-ton head, based on Godzilla’s appearance in Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992), was unveiled in 2015. Its placement on the Hotel Gracery’s terrace matches Godzilla’s 50-meter height seen during the Showa era films in the franchise.

The reptile has only the head and 3 enormous claws surfacing from the high-rise, a stance that is a reference to the popular 1992 movie Godzilla vs Mothra. Its open mouth shows numerous and sharp teeth in a menacing attitude to passersby who can see it from the street. Its seems like its roar is echoing in the city. Godzilla Head is indeed animated every hour in the afternoon: it roars and breathes white smoke while its pierce eyes are glowing with blue flashes.
