Giant Godzilla Statue Just Outside Tokyo! In a... Flower Park?
Also if you get tired, there is a mini train car that can take you around the park for just 200yen!
Near the entrance of the park there is also a small snacks stand that serves soft ice cream in vanilla and lavender flavour! Perfect for a hot day.
If it's a little colder, they serve curry udon - a thick type of Japanese noodle.
Kurihama Flower Park is just over an hour out of Tokyo, and perfect for a day trip. There are convenience stores near the station so you can grab yourself a couple of rice balls and snack on them while you are in the park. The park itself is free entry, but bring a little extra money for snacks and maybe a round of archery. And don't forget your camera to catch a snap of Godzilla himself before he goes to wreak havoc on Tokyo!
Access: The park is approx 1 hour from Shinagawa station, and just a 15 minute walk from Kurihama station on the Keikyu line.
Address: 239 0832, 1-12 Shinmeicho, Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture 239-0832
