Urban Landscape, Japanese Style!

  • Pin it

Something tells me they will not stop here! The city of Kobe, Japan, just honorably received/unveiled a new honorary citizen in their urban landscape: Gigantor.

Gigantor is a nice 60-foot statue and (on an imaginary time axis) goes right between his predecessor 59-foot Gundam from Tokyo and the upcoming Taekwon V (Voltar the Invincible) that’ll measure twice the height of the honorable Statue of Liberty! (via)

Well we now know that the city of Kobe is safe from Godzilla as they now have a guardian in Gigantor!

BTW Taekwon V is Korean, not Japanese.
