Straw Godzilla Statue Astounds

Godzilla is a part of huge part of Japanese pop-culture and it has permeated here, into the West with varying degrees of success. As part of the annual harvest festival in the Japanese town of Chikuzen, a giant hay effigy was create to the beast in 2016. A dedicated, and slightly eccentric team, spent over four months building the main frame of the beast whilst over a hundred volunteers completed the project. What makes the creature stand out, however, is the glowing red LED lights- an homage to Hideki Anno’s Shin Godzilla from 2016.
