Take a ride on Ohno’s Kaibutsu-kun slide

A giant 12-metre-high, 18-metre-long slide of Satoshi Ohno’s Kaibutsu-kun will open in Tokyo later this month, reports Cinema Today.

The Kaibutsu-kun Movie Giant Slider will be a feature of this year’s 汐博2011 (Shiohaku 2011) event at the Nihon TV tower in Tokyo, open from July 22 to August 21.

The theme of the slide is Kabutsu-kun’s arm stretching out 18 metres.  Like the Arashi leader had said previously, “there’ll be lots of arm stretching”, fans will get to see Kaibutsu-kun stretching his arm for real.

The slide was created by balloon artist JIRO, who spent three months finishing his work.  It has been reported Ohno’s face on the slide measures more than six metres by three metres, 25 times bigger than the real Ohno’s face.

“When I saw it for the first time, I laughed because it was so real…  It was so accurate.  And I thought it looked like me.  I never expected it to be that big.  It looks so cool,” Ohno said.

Other Kaibutsu-kun specials at the event will include an exhibition of props and sets used in the movie and a photo set.

The movie itself is set to be released on November 26 this year.
