Tokyo Midtown has installed a gigantic Godzilla in Midtown Park. The beast is a 1:7 scale model of Hollywood’s latest incarnation of the rampaging monster. It is to be situated in the park so that visitors can take photos next to it with Akasaka’s skyscrapers or Tokyo Tower in the background. At least five times per evening, the park will use lighting and fog effects to make the model more atmospheric. Admission is free.
Of course, if Godzilla is not your thing, then you can relax in Bacardi Midpark Cafe. The lush green space seats around 100 people and this year’s outdoor bar features 500 yen mojito’s and South American food. On weekdays, the bar is open from 17:00 – 22:00 (21:30 L.O.) and on Saturdays and holidays from 15:00 – 22:00 (21:30 L.O.)
