It’s time to awaken amazing thrills in Ayala Malls and revel in the fun, unique, and quirky elements that make Japanese culture such a global phenomenon.
We start off at Glorietta with one of Japan’s biggest cultural icons, Godzilla, who peeks down from the 4th level rooftop of the mall for the big screen showing of Godzilla II: King of the Monsters at the Glorietta’s iconic G4 theater.
The G4 cinemas are the best place to experience the much-awaited Godzilla flick, which stars Kyle Chandler as well as Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, because of the theater’s comfortable seats and surround-sound technology – there’s no better place to hear the iconic creature roar at his finest best than at one of Manila’s most popular cinema destinations.

Turning Japanese in Japan Town
From Tokyo to Glo, the King of Monsters has arrived and will be at the Glorietta 4 until June 18 and will be on the loose at Glorietta’s Japan Town that is set to open by mid-June. Located at the Top of the Glo, Japan Town is the go-to place for all things Japanese with a comprehensive and unique offering of food, entertainment, culture, and events.
Japan Town will offer a culinary food trip with restaurant concepts such as Tendon Akimitsu, Hakata Ramen, Musashi Maru, Shaburi Kintan, Mitsuyadu Ramen, Coco Ichibanya and 102 Izakaya. Shaburi Kintan, for example, will offer 50 sumptuous selections of Japanese dishes at great value with healthy and delicious choices of meat, seafood, and vegetables along with equally healthy and scrumptious broth with their shabu-shabu, and fresh and delectable meats for grilling at their yakiniku station. Musashi Maru, which belongs to one of the biggest group of restaurants in Toyohashi, Aichi, Japan, specializes in tonkatsu, sushi, ramen and other popular gourmet dishes. Tendon Akimitsu, which is known for its tempura selections is a 5-Time Gold Medalist at Japan Donburi Awards, while Hakata will serve its comforting ramen as an answer to affordable indulgence. All these restaurants will hold court at Japan Town to give diners full serving of flavors that are authentic and delicious.
