    ● "Life-Sized Godzilla's Eyes" (等身大のゴジラの眼, Tōshindai no Gojira no Me)

    A 5.5-meter wide x 2.4-meter high  (18 x 8 foot) art piece will be installed,  making It appear that Godzilla is destroying the walls of Central Park. When a visitor stands in front of the "Godzilla's Eyes" to take a photo, the monster's eyes glow angrily and his roar will also be heard.

    From a very limited time (Thursday, November 2 - Saturday, November 4) Godzilla will also blow out his white breath, allowing visitors to feel as if a living Godzilla is  right there before them.


    ● "Flash Godzilla!" (ゴジラの姿をフラッシュ!,  Gojira no Sugata o Furasshiyu!)

    By taking flash photography of the pictures of Godzilla that are already on display, a powerful new image of Godzilla will be revealed.
