Combining urban innovation and entertainment in epic proportions, Japanese netizens are hoping developers make this a reality.

Aside from Godzilla’s head peeking out from atop a Shinjuku skyscraper and a couple of statues of its likeness scattered about Tokyo, the iconic monster doesn’t seem to have much of a physical presence in Japan. However, Japan’s cinema giant Toho and leading real estate developer Mitsubishi Estate are saying they’re determined to rectify that problem.

Construction is already underway to build the country’s tallest building complex, the Tokiwabashi, in the heart of Tokyo’s central business district. Although Towers A to D are expected to be completed by 2027, Toho has stated that plans for a Tower G are already underway.

▼ What does the “G” stand for? There can only be one answer to that.

According to the project’s website, Tower G will incorporate the same (and very real) Godzilla frozen back in 2016’s Godzilla: Resurgence, with its long tail wrapped around one side of the building. As if that wasn’t surprising enough, a roller coaster is pictured running along the terrifying monster’s serpentine tail and spiky back before thrusting through its head, promising to be a heck of a ride for thrill-seekers.

▼ I’m sure Godzilla wouldn’t mind us going on a ride through its head.

According to the promotional information, Godzilla’s nuclear power is harnessed by state-of-the-art technology to provide near-limitless energy to the building, but “in order to prevent the frightening monster from waking up and wreaking havoc on Tokyo once again, Tower G’s temperature will be regulated at a freezing -196 degrees Celcius (-320.8 degrees Fahrenheit).”

Failproof measures are also said to be in place, as the “Giant Unknown Organism Special Disaster” headquarters will occupy Tower G, ready to pump blood coagulant to freeze the monster should it rouse from its slumber.

▼ Godzilla is also mysteriously positioned to face away
from the one place it will never trespass.

After being shown a few images of what Tower G would look like, visitors to the official website are then greeted with a banner warning that the project is nothing but a rather obvious April Fool’s joke. Robbed of a potentially awesome tourist spot, Japanese netizens are still hoping the developers make it happen somehow:

“That’s fascinating! I want to go.”
“That’s crazy. I so want to see this!”
“I want to ride it.”
“Humankind is strong.”
“Please build something like this.”

What’s real though, is that there’s a Godzilla poster gallery spanning one wall of the Tokiwabashi construction site. Measuring three meters tall and 140 meters long (9.84 x 459 feet), the public gallery features all 29 posters ever made of the monster, allowing fans to snap pictures and marvel at how much Godzilla has evolved throughout the years.
