Day 1: Meet Godzilla and Fellow Travelers! 

October 9, 2023

Welcome to Tokyo! Transfers directly from the airport to your hotel are available for purchase. Today you will be checking into your super cool Godzilla Hotel in Shinjuku!! On the terrace of the hotel is a towering Godzilla statue — it doesn’t get more epic than this. The monster even moves and roars, with flashing eyes! 

Meet the rest of your group at the hotel lobby tonight for drinks.

Gracery Shinjuku

Gracery Shinjuku, a wonderfully idiosyncratic hotel in the best Tokyo possible location - Shinjuku! Shinjuku is known for shopping, dining, and nightlife, so there's allot for travelers to do within walking distance. 

If you’re a guest of the hotel, you can access the terrace where Godzilla lives… that is, if you dare. The cafe is guarded by a life-sized version of the monster, similar to this 1995 Godzilla statue that you can put in your home.

The relaxing lounge has an adjoining outdoor terrace, and large selection of snacks and cocktails. There’s even a Godzilla cake that you can bite into.

In the evening, Godzilla awakens at the top of each hour (6pm, 7pm, etc). For a few minutes, he shakes his head and his eyes flash like lightning. The creature bares his pointed teeth and spits out fog — or rather, his secret weapon of “atomic breath.”

Room Type: Standard
