Godzilla Statue in Tokyo

In Hibiya Square,  just a short walk from Hibiya Train Station in Tokyo is a small bronze Godzilla statue. Now this statue is tiny, only about 2 feet tall, standing on a pedestal which makes it just above eye level. It is kind of ironic that such a massive monster has such a small statue built in the middle of Tokyo to honour the fire-breathing Godzilla.

The Toho Cinemas open in April 2015 and has the huge Godzilla crashing through the top of the roof looking down over Kabukicho. To get to see the Godzilla head you have to be a fair way down the street. Looking up directly from the Toho Cinemas you can only see Gozilla’s claws grabbing onto the building.
