In Kabukichō, Shinjuku, there is a massive Godzilla head, from the 1992 film "Godzilla VS Mothra," which was created to show the essence of the popular character Godzilla. The statue is located in the Shinjuku Toho Building (新宿東宝ビル). There is a life-size model with a height of 12 metres on the eighth-floor terrace. Visitors can see the model up close from the terrace when using the hotel or the cafe in the building. It is a five-minute walk from JR Shinjuku Station East Exit. The model weighs in at 80 tons and is partly made of fibreglass. It can be seen from Yasukuni Lane, as well.



The Godzilla Head is a landmark and tourist attraction in Kabukichō, Shinjuku, Tokyo. The sculpture is accessible from the Godzilla Terrace of the Gracery Shinjuku Hotel at the Shinjuku Toho Building. It depicts Godzilla, occasionally with "glowing eyes and smoky breath." The 80-ton head, based on Godzilla's appearance in Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992), was unveiled in 2015. Its placement on the terrace of the Gracery Hotel corresponds to Godzilla's height of 50 metres from the Showa-era films.
