A Day in Roppongi

Once in a while, we go out for a day. In this case, we thought we might go to Roppongi and see the Godzilla sculpture and the new movie. You know, get all our kaiju out of the way at once.

It's been something of a photo attraction.

The detail is phenomenal.

We could get right up to it, and poking a little at the tail we realized it's all foam. Like, the kind that comes in a spray can that expands and then dries. I wonder two things: one, what the heck will they do with it when they take it down? And two, how do I get to be on a team that sculpts and paints things like this?

Walking through the mall to get to the theater, these were on display to showcase an artist's work (and promote a show? I couldn't read the signs).

We also passed this steakhouse. It is the Very Steak, the Big Cut of Steak.

It also has the misfortune to be right next to an Outback Steakhouse.

The Godzilla movie was fun! It was surreal to see an American version of a Japanese movie franchise while being Americans in Tokyo, but I enjoyed it.

And we went back to visit again after the movie (after dark), because we heard there was a light show.

We had to wait about 20 minutes for the next one, but luckily there was a mojito booth nearby.

There's no reason for this video to be 2 minutes long, but I'm both too lazy to crop it down and too amused by the family running away from the statue in the first ten seconds to bother editing it.

Feel free to skip around, the dramatic parts are at 1:15 and 2:00.

Bonus train advertisement for no reason:

You're welcome.
