Godzilla’s Head

No, this isn’t the result of decapitating the atomic beast from the depths of the Pacific Ocean, but a promo piece from the 2014 remake of the 1954 classic monster film. The 12m tall head debuted outside Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi, but its permanent home is atop the Toho Cinemas / Gracery Hotel in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho. Seeing it up close can be pricey; either be a guest of the hotel or eat at the restaurant sharing the same 8th floor balcony. For free good views, you can see it clearly from street level looking north on the main street in front of the hotel or through an east facing window on a Yamanote line train north of Shinjuku station.
