On Location
GvD Rampage Tour

As a Godzilla fan, you know you've always wanted to visit Japan. Of course, to see the sights, take in the culture, do some shopping, catch a movie... But haven't we all had that desire to see the places Godzilla attacked?

Which would be the best way to go? Well, Tokyo made it easy for you: just take two monorail rides! You get a scenic elevated tour, with stops near every attraction. Start at Tokyo Station near the Ginza district (from Shinjuku Station, take the Eidan Marunouchi subway (Red eastbound) to get to Tokyo Station). Once there, you can go either of two ways:

Yurikamome Monorail
Take a southbound JR train to Shinbashi station, where you can board the monorail. It will take you across the Rainbow Bridge, and past the Telecom Center, Ariake Coliseum, and the Big Sight.

Tokyo Monorail
Take a southbound JR train to Hamamatsucho station, where you can catch the monorail. You'll see Tennouzu Isle, Shinagawa Station, Shinagawa Aquarium, and it terminates at Haneda Airport.

GvD-related Side Trips

Looking for a little romance afterward? Try a sunset cruise down Tokyo Bay and under the Rainbow Bridge. It worked for Dr. Ijuin and Yukari! Not for the budget-conscious, however.

A less expensive way to see the same views would be to take the Water Bus shuttle boat from the Hinode Pier to Aomi. Hinode is the second Yurikamome stop after boarding at Shimbashi.

A few blocks northwest of Shimbashi Station is Hibiya Park where you can see a permanent statue of Godzilla! Built in 1995, the one meter (3 ft) tall and 130kg (287 lb) bronze statue commemorates Godzilla's death in Godzilla vs Destoroyah.

Thanks to Tokyo Meltdown for "Meltie", the Tokyo Meltdown monster (top). Meltie, though he comes from Tokyo and breathes fire, is no relation to Godzilla, who is much scalier. If you came here via its Tokyo Scenery link, click below to see the rest of my site.
