In order to view the godzilla head and get the best photos, you have to either be a guest of the hotel, or must order from the cafe. That was perfectly fine by us and we ended up having a fun "Godzilla themed" dessert and...More

We went up to the cafe and there it was, you can walk right up to it and take pictures. It was great!

What the???? Is that....really???? Wandering to dinner in Shinjuku, one looks up and sees THIS! How wonderfully Tokyo, just perfect. Maybe have a few drinks before arriving, it will help with the sense of the impending destruction of the city around you.

Godzilla head at the top of a building is not something you are used to see but they did it. You can be sure, Japaneses love him (another one is about to be built).
