A public bathhouse in Tokyo’s Ota ward is playing host to an offbeat collaboration with the movie Shin Godzilla (Godzilla Resurgence).

The Dai-Ni Hinode-Yu bathhouse, which draws water from the area’s unusual black hot spring, now features a landscape mural of Godzilla created by Mizuki Tanaka, Japan’s only female bathhouse mural artist.

Taking a bath in black water while Godzilla towers overhead amid local landmarks such as Haneda Airport, the Tama River and Ikegami-Honmonji temple is likely to be an unrepeatable experience. The mural is scheduled to be on display until late October.

Getting there

11 minutes on foot from Kamata Station on the JR Keihin Tohoku Line
