Godzilla appears at last, TOHO Cinemas in Shinjuku

UPDATE : The Godzilla Head has now been officially unveiled on April 09, 2015. YOU CAN GO SEE IT ONLY AFTER APRIL 17 THOUGH. 

Godzilla Head at Toho Cinemas Shinjuku

ORIGINAL STORY : A few months back we reported on the Hotel Gracery a themed hotel with magnificent view of the Godzilla figure, an awesome 39 feet (12 meters) Godzilla head to be erected on top of new movie complex Toho Cinemas Shinjuku. The head has now been placed at its planned location and we went to take a look at the development. Cna you spot the Godzilla on top of the building for TOHO Cinemas?

Its really awesome in the size and although we could not go up and see the complete figure the view from down leaves no doubt that this will be one more attraction in the city of Tokyo very soon for foreigner tourists to visit to.

The Godzilla is less prominent from near the building and we suggest you stand at a distance to see the whole figure. Closer you get, you get to see less of the face and more of the jaw and the teeth lining of the figure.

Prepare for lines to get your favorite donut here as you see in the South Exit side of Shinjuku Station. Gets too crowded.

We have never been there ourselves with human like figures serving drinks and food, but is supposedly on a must see list for many tourists coming to Japan from overseas.
