Water Horse Invades Japan

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 1st, 2008


I have a feeling that the promotion of Water Horse in Japan is being handled much differently than it was in the USA, where the creature was treated as if it could be your bathtub pet.

Here is video of the amazing hologram that was recently created off Tokyo to acknowledge the release of the film in Japan.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Gotta give credit to our friends from the Rising Sun: They sure know how to give a good monster show. Banzai!

    Man, That hologram registered 9.5 in my Coolster scale -A 10 would be an actual Nessie sighting 🙂

    PD: Mystery_man, you live in Japan, did you get a chance to see this?

  4. noobfun responds:

  5. pcs800 responds:

    That is sooooo flippin cool, OMG. Looks like something that would live at Universal Studios theme parks.

  6. John Sawyer responds:

    Now how exactly is that done???

    I see the water-spraying spout, but is the image projected onto a flat water screen, and only looks 3D/holographic, or is there some real 3D element to it?

  7. mystery_man responds:

    I have been really busy for the last few weeks and unable to post. Just saw this now and even though I live in Japan, I hadn’t seen this! I will say though that they really do their monsters right in Japan. I wish I could have seen this live.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
