    Yokohama 150 year celebration. Giant mechanical spider. What’s the connection?
  • TokyoGas at 02:23 PM JST – 18th April
    I want to ride it!
  • rogerbentham at 02:53 PM JST – 18th April
    it would have been neat if it could support it’s own weight and even move around, but i doubt it judging by the hydraulic mounts in the back.
  • Totillytarian at 03:29 PM JST – 18th April
    I saw this spider in Liverpool!
  • Badge213 at 03:54 PM JST – 18th April
    War of the Worlds! Terminator! This is crazy. Good reason to stop in Yokohama if it’s still there.
  • jonnyboy at 04:11 PM JST – 18th April
    is it going to fight ultraman?
  • sf2k at 05:56 PM JST – 18th April
    yes what an excellent symbolic way to remind Japanese that they opened their borders.. “We should mark the anniversary with a giant monster” Check.
  • sf2k at 05:57 PM JST – 18th April
    now if they had opened the port 150 years ago with giant mechanical spiders, THAT would be awesome
