Located on Awaji Island, the theme park is a must visit destination for Godzilla fans.
Nijigen no Mori on Awaji Island is home to “Godzilla Interception Operation Awaji,” an attraction that features a 120-meter-long Godzilla with an accompanying zip line, the world’s only Godzilla Museum, a Godzilla themed cafe, and an extensive gift shop. Having opened in fall 2020, the interactive experience is a must-visit destination for Godzilla fans all over the world.
Godzilla Interception Operation Awaji features an original Godzilla story as part of the attraction.
