Godzilla Claw Room

Snuggle up to Godzilla at Hotel Gracery Shinjuku

“Look mommy, a dinosaur!” Tokyo welcomed yet another wild hotel last month, with the Godzilla-themed Hotel Gracery Shinjuku. Nope, it’s not at Universal Studios—the address opened in Tokyo’s nightlife and entertainment epicenter of Kabukicho. The monstertastic property is offering two types of Godzilla-themed rooms: one top-floor suite with special-effect walls and a huge claw coming out of the ceiling over the bed; and six other “Godzilla View” rooms that peer right into the red eye—a life-size replica of the film star’s head. The location is quite fitting, as it’s inside a new entertainment complex, complete with 12 cinemas. With any luck, you’ll get to see the King of the Monsters in action on the big screen… and then again before bed.
From JPY13,000. 1-19-1 Kabukicho, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan, (+81) 3-6833-2489, shinjuku.gracery.com.
