    The all-weather hot spring amusement park Hakone Kowakien Yunessun ( Address 1297 Ninotaira, Hakone-machi, Ashigarashimo-gun, Kanagawa Prefecture 250-0407; Manager: Motonobu Matsuyama) will host a special event with the new movie GODZILLA MINUS ONE (ゴジラ-1.0/ゴジラマイナスワン, Gojira Mainasu Wan) from Friday, October 20, 2023 until Monday, January 8, 2024.

    This event is a collaboration between Yunessunwhich underwent a major renovation this past July -- the biggest since the spa's opening -- and GODZILLA MINUS ONE, a film commemorating the 70th anniversary of Godzilla. In addition, the Hotel Gracery Shinjuku in Tokyo, which is famous for its landmark ``Godzilla Head'', will also be included in this project, providing a system that connects Shinjuku to Hakone. Yunessun will be transformed into a ``Godzilla-class Yunessun,'' with interior decorations including an ``impressive and ultra-realistic Godzilla statue,'' a new Godzilla-inspired bath, original Godzilla drinks, and more. Additional details for the Godzilla promotion will be announced soon.
