The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (東京都庁舎,   Tōkyō-to Chōsha) is a complex of three skyscrapers located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, with Building No. 1 being the tallest. Opened in 1991, the building houses the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, which governs over the entire Tokyo Metropolitan Area. Alongside the National Diet Building and Tokyo Tower, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building has become a prominent landmark in the years since its construction. In the Godzilla franchise, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building first appeared in the 1991 film Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.

History

Heisei Series

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

Emmy Kano confronted Godzilla while piloting Mecha-King Ghidorah as he rampaged through Tokyo's Shinjuku ward. Godzilla struck the top of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building's towers with his atomic breath while trying to hit the cyborg, then Mecha-King Ghidorah damaged it further while returning fire. After knocking Godzilla into another nearby building, Emmy aimed at one of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building's towers, severing it and dropping it onto Godzilla. The rest of that tower was destroyed when the two monsters barreled through it later in their battle.
