Mobile Suit Gundam

The mobile suit Gundam was on my list of things I wanted to see while in Tokyo since seeing Gundam’s way back in the mid 80’s and becoming a bit of a fan. 

So heading over to Odaiba and going to the main entrance of Diver City and walking around the corner and spotting it I was well impressed and glad I made the journey and I then spent a while just looking and watching it come to life so to speak  as they put a little show on with lights and I think steam coming out of it’s chest and a video showing on the main building behind.

I know the next time I’m in Tokyo i would go and see it again maybe picking a different time maybe in the winter and in the dark I think would look really good.

Fox’s at the Toyokawa Inari Shrine

While I was strolling around the Toyokawa Inari Shrine in the Toyokawa-shi, Aichi Prefecture, I was totally taken by surprise by seeing all these stone Fox’s when I came across them.

If you ever travel around Japan you see stone Fox’s every where but I have never seen so many all in one place a real treat and all donated by worshipers.

Godzilla and Tokyo

I got really lucky this time when exploring Tokyo, in the past there has only been one permeant Godzilla display over in the middle of the Hibiya Chante square near Ginza which is a beautiful but small statue.

Now there’s another over at the Hotel Gracery in Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward  built into the hotel and has rooms themed around Godzilla as well.

Then there was a Godzilla statue built to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Godzilla over in the Garden in Tokyo Midtown but when I arrived it had been moved to the main road but it still looked very good and well worth seeing as it was still attracting a lot of people which made taking my own photos difficult especially as I was short of time …
