Giant Gundam RX-78

This fall, a full-scale replica of the venerable manga automaton Tetsujin 28 was unveiled in Kobe, Japan. The character, known in the West as Gigantor, was the first example of Japan’s greatest cultural export — the giant robot. But the three-story-tall steel monster isn’t the country’s first “life-size” bot statue. There’s a veritable army of them. Why not spend the holidays making a pilgrimage?

Mobile Suit Gundam RX-78
Height 60 feet (if it weren’t in a recumbent pose)
Location Fuji-Q Highland park, near Mount Fuji
Getting there Take the Fujikyu high-speed bus from the Yaesu South gate.
Fun fact If fans complete a data-collecting game, they are granted access to nerdvana (the cockpit in its chest).
