Ultraman vs. Hidora Exhibition
Izu's Shaboten Park was the location for the Ultraman episode "Terror On Route 87" which was filmed in the late 60s. The bird-like statue in the episode was actually an attraction at the park, and is still standing today. Shaboten Park features a live action "Ultra Heroes" show in the summer, and this year they set up a small Ultraman vs. Hidora (the monster in the episode) exhibition. The exhibition showcases Hidora (Hydra in the English version), and includes a small prop display and an Ultraman timeline. There's also a stage set up for photographs and exclusive Ultraman items available. Ultraman geeks might find this pretty interesting.
