I was walking through West Shinjuku on the 6th when I saw one of those huge skyscrapers emblazoned with Godzilla himself/herself. It was kind of a surprise to see that...somewhat akin to seeing a kanji tattoo etched into the arm of Audrey Hepburn. But hey, The Big Green One is one of the most famous exports of Japanese pop culture into the world.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to go too deep into Kabukicho in East Shinjuku this time around but a semi-model of Godzilla has been erected over a new movie theatre. It's hard to see in the above photo but if you just look off in the distance through that side street going into Kabukicho, you may just see his head popping up.
