Realistic Godzilla, But Small

There is a realistic Godzilla Statue, but it is small. You need to get very close to it to take good pictures with it.

The statue of Godzilla is not that impressive but the area is quite good and popular with tourists and if you are in Ginza or Hibiya then worth a look. There are theatres and restaurants and shopping in the area and access is via the metro (Ginza line) or the JR Yamanote (Yurakucho station)

Our hotel is very near this statue and our guide explained some of it's history but to make a special trip to see it- only if you're a fan of GODZILLA

The Hibiya Chanter Square is a small plaza with hundreds of metal raised relief castings of celebrities honored in Japan. There's even one for Tom Cruise. This is akin to Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Situated at the Chanter Square is a four foot Godzilla statue atop a pedestal. It was placed there following the end of the second (or Heisei)... More

We were a few blocks away looking to kill an hour of time. I found this on the Trip Advisor app and we walked over. The statue is about 2.5 feet tall and actually pretty small. The photo makes it look huge. We took a few photos with it but that's about it. Definitely do go out of your way... More

As part of this year's tour of Japan, we made a stop at the Hibiya Chanter area to visit the Godzilla Statue. Not much new to add to my previous review, except that I found Tom Cruise's hand-prints on the Toho Walk of Fame behind the statue (for his work on THE LAST SAMURAI), and cartoon character Doraemon had his...

Enjoyed the restaurants in the basement of this building. There is also a macrobiotic restaurant for those who are vegan. The shopping wasn't for me, though...mostly, clothing shops for the working women of Hibiya.

Don't be fooled by the pictures - the Godzilla statue here is actually pretty small. The pedestal it stands on is almost five feet tall, and then Godzilla sitting on top of it is between three and a half to four feet tall. It is cool and iconic but it's not worth making a special trip to see. If you... More

Location of the Godzilla statue in Tokyo (there is a much larger Godzilla statue in front of the main gate at Toho Studios in Setagaya). Behind the Hibiya Godzilla is also a Toho movie "walk-of-fame" with handprints of famous Japanese actors. The only two I could identify were the hand prints of Toshiro Mifune and Akira Takarada.

It is located very near Ginza shopping area, and there is nothing particular to say about.

Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
