Ultraman Max statue in Nagoya


Outside the CBC building in Nagoya, Japan, stands an (almost!) life-size replica of Tsuburaya Productions' Ultraman Max. G-fans, take note!

Bet you never read about this tokusatsu-related attraction in any travel guide!

Nagoya's CBC building hosts an incredible Ultraman Max statue that is sure to interest monster movie fans who would like to visit Japan.



While Nagoya Castle and Nagoya Tower are often cited as the main attractions for G-fans who sight-see in and around Nagoya, this Ultraman Max statue must be added to the top of the list! But a picture's worth a thousand words, so let's get to the good stuff!


Yours truly with the statue.

Showat!


Coincidentally, there was a vending machine with an old Godzilla Kirin coffee inside just down the street from the statue!



Nagoya's Ultraman Max statue isn't well-publicized among U.S. Godzilla fans, but I hope this blog post helps to change that. It's a great location to visit when stopping by Nagoya!
