Source: YouTube 10-Meter Straw Godzilla Makes Special Appearance At Annual Harvest Festival 2016-11-03 Thu 2016-11-03 Thu The annual harvest festival held in the town of Chikuzen, Fukuoka is a grand two-day event that takes months to prepare for. Every year, staff and locals put their hands together to create an enormous statue out of straw and bamboo, and it's recently been revealed that the 2016 festival will feature a 10-meter tall Godzilla from the newest movie, Shin Gojira. 筑前町かがし祭の藁で出来たシンゴジラ、予想外の出来に驚いたわ自衛隊まで来てるし#シンゴジラ #ゴジラ pic.twitter.com/3NxmkquWCw— としあきたろぅ (@ohbinder) November 1, 2016 The Godzilla statue took 4 months to complete, with over 170 people contributing to help design and build it. Though it's unlikely we would ever see Godzilla standing calmly among beds of pink flowers, the final result is quite surprisingly accurate to the most recent figure of the King of Monsters, from the formation of the massive legs to the long, club like tail. The eyes and mouth of this bamboo-and-straw statue are even made to light up at night, making it look as though it will suddenly come alive and blast its atomic breath. According to the tweets of some of the visitors, the Japanese Self-Defense Forces even made it to the big reveal! 宣伝ど～んとかがし祭りの一環として、筑前町ふるさと応援寄附金を活用して巨大わらゴジラを、作りました。祭りの日程前夜祭１１月５日（土）１８時～２０時３０分本祭１１月６日（日）１０時～１６時◆開催場所 安の里公園一帯住所：福岡県朝倉郡筑前町篠隈６７３－１ pic.twitter.com/hIvqfmaLtL— シン・SAKIMORI (@oculal) October 31, 2016 LED点灯まで粘ったけど寒すぎる目が明るすぎる気がｗ#シンゴジラ #ゴジラ #筑前町 #かがし祭 pic.twitter.com/L2iCDOl1l9— としあきたろぅ (@ohbinder) November 1, 2016 The 12th Annual Chikuzen Harvest Festival will be held on November 5th and 6th.
