More than 30 million people call Tokyo, Japan home. It’s ranked as the most populated city on earth. Among the countless crisscrossing streets and towering skyscrapers more than 700 urban geocaches are hidden.
“Godzilla” (GC28YAD) is one of the growing number of geocaches in Tokyo. It was placed by hogehopo in May of this year. The micro cache takes treasure hunters to a statue of the monster movie and pop culture icon Godzilla.
The challenge with this, as with many urban caches, is avoiding the seemingly ever-present muggles. One of the other obstacles is “bounce” from the GPS signals — a result of the tall buildings surrounding the cache location.
Even with such challenges, more than 40 geocachers have logged “Godzilla” since the geocache was hidden in May.
