FEATURE: World's Largest Evangelion Unit-01 Statue in Ashigara

Time-limited collaboration event will be held till December 23

EXPASA Ashigara SA on the Tomei Expressway, which is located in Koyama-cho, Shizuoka Prefecture, has been hosting a time-limited collaboration event with the mega hit anime series Evangelion from July 17 to December 23, and has already attracted 2 million visitors. Its main feature is a 6 meter-tall "World's Largest" statue of Evangelion Unit-01. 

 

On my way home from Tokyo on Monday, the highway bus unexpectedly stopped at the SA (service area) at around 23:00. Though the event also has an Eva-themed restaurant and shop, they were already closed so I couldn't check the inside. Fortunately, the area displaying the giant Eva 01 statue was still open, so I took as many photos as possible in the 10-minute stoppage time.

 

*all of the photos were taken by Mikikazu Komatsu on October 5.
