This huge 12-meter tall model of ”Godzilla” was established as the symbol of Kabukicho, Shinjuku.
The huge Godzilla head that suddenly appeared in Kabuki-cho, Shinjuku, was established to convey the charm of the global character Godzilla when the Shinjuku Toho Building started business in April 2015. The Godzilla head placed in the outdoor terrace of the eighth floor is a life size model with a height of 12 meters. It is from the movie ”Godzilla VS Mothra” filmed in 1992, which is a film in the Godzilla series. Toho Eizo Bijutsu, the producer of the movie, made this model that weighs 80 tons with special material reinforced with fiberglass. You can see it from behind the building from Yasukuni Street, which makes you feel like a real life Godzilla has appeared in Shinjuku.If you use the hotel or cafe in the building, you will be able to see the model up close from the terrace. The Shinjuku Toho Building is a five-minute walk from JR Shinjuku Station East exit, or a three-minute walk from Seibu-Shinjuku Station.
