Godzilla gets residency in Tokyo


TOKYO: Fictional city-wrecking monster Godzilla has been granted special residency in Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward, as a newly installed model of the lizard’s huge head proves a pull to visitors. Marking “the emergence of the 12-metre (40-feet) high Godzilla head on a terrace on the eighth floor of Shinjuku Toho Building… we issued a special certificate of residence to Godzilla,” a Shinjuku official told AFP Wednesday. The 30-floor commercial complex has a hotel, cinemas, shops and restaurants, and the newly installed beast’s head is visible to passers-by on the street below.
