Tokyo's GIant Gundam Statue
The land of the rising sun has many reasons to be epic, but now they've entered into truly crazy epic territory. Three words: giant - freaking - robots! That's right, Nippon has combined its love of robots with heaps of awesome.
If you didn't want to go to Japan before, how about a chance to see a 59 foot tall Gundam robot? Or the soon to arrive Kobe statue? Personally I think it's all a smokescreen for Japan's very real robot research project and plans for world domination. And I'll be the first one to kneel at the feet of our new robotic overlords.
