The Godzilla Head (ゴジラヘッド,   Gojira Heddo) is a giant statue of the head of Godzilla mounted on the 8th floor terrace of the Hotel Gracery Shinjuku in Tokyo, Japan. The building also contains a Toho Cinemas theater, where the red carpet premiere for Shin Godzilla and the blue carpet Japanese premiere of Godzilla: King of the Monsters were held.

Development

The construction of the Godzilla Head was first announced on December 8, 2014[1] and it was finished on April 10, 2015.

Information

The head is based on the head of the BatoGoji Godzilla suit.[2] The head is capable of spewing mist and having its eyes illuminate. It is located 50 meters above the ground, making it a life-size representation of Godzilla's height in the Showa era. The faux rubble beneath the head contains relief depictions of scenes from the original Godzilla, The Return of Godzilla, and Godzilla vs. Mothra.
