Godzilla has been spotted in the Japanese countryside, but don’t worry, this one’s not smashing buildings.

Weeks after the annual Straw Art Festival in Nagata, Japan wowed us with life-size dinosaurs and giant insects built from rice straw, Japanese straw artists have amazed yet again.

A group of over 150 volunteers spent over four months building a giant straw rice Godzilla in the town of Chikuzen. The piece, meant to celebrate the harvest, towers over the landscape at a height of over 22 feet.

It also features LED lights embedded in its eyes, fins, and its nearly 33-foot-long tail.

Did seeing that amazing art whet your appetite for more Godzilla? The newest film in the long running series Shin Godzilla (Godzilla Resurgence in the U.S.) was released earlier this year. Have a look at the trailer below.
