Godzilla Head, Shinjuku
(2.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Peeking out of the eighth floor of a hotel terrace and looking down on a busy street some 40 m (130 ft) below, Godzilla Head makes a popular sight in Shinjuku. The giant 12 m (39 ft) tall reptillian head breaks out of the open terrace, with a roaring sound and tremor which you can experience on the ground floor if you come at the right time. Although only hotel or restaurant guests are allowed to see the attraction from up close, you can come in for a coffee to get a great view of the monster's head. Well-lit at night, the head gives off a laser beam show that can be seen from far away. To visit Godzilla Head and get the most from your holiday in Tokyo, create itinerary details personal to you using our Tokyo trip itinerary maker.
