Godzilla Named Tokyo District's Tourism Ambassador: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Godzilla, the movie monster famous for attacking Tokyo, now has a permanent home on one of the city`s skyscrapers and was named a district tourism ambassador.


A 40-foot-tall sculpture of the giant lizard`s head was installed on the commercial complex in the Shinjuku shopping and entertainment district, and district Mayor Kenichi Yoshizumi named Godzilla as Shinjuku`s official tourism ambassador in a ceremony celebrating the construction`s completion."


This is a classic example of thinking outside the box, what an original and creative way of luring visitors to the Shinjuku shopping and entertainment district.

Godzilla is the perfect goodwill and tourism ambassador, adults have warm nostalgic feelings towards him, and children love him to death.

A 40-foot-tall sculpture of the giant lizard`s head is guaranteed to get the attention of tourists just dying to spend their hard-earned cash.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio needs to get with the damn program, and erect a giant Godzilla on top of the Empire State Building.
