I absolutely love Godzilla. From the “man in suit” films of the 50’s to the silliness of the 70’s and the more gritty films of the 80’s, 90’s…and yes even the American remakes (except the 1998 Matthew Broderick movie…we don’t talk about that), Godzilla is a cultural icon that has spread around the globe. The big mean green has been in over 35 films to date, which makes him the longest running franchise ever. Of those 35 films, 32 of those have been filmed, produced and released exclusively in Japan.
Man, do the Japanese love their Godzilla. While here, Godzilla is a huge dumb monster movie…and the latest “King of the Monsters” is no exception, there Godzilla is more than an icon, he’s a fixture in life and reflects the moods and feelings of Japan.
So much so that you can see Godzilla in his many different forms all over Japan, and especially in Tokyo. Luckily, our friend YukenDoIt is here with an all new video, showcasing the many different places that you can see Godzilla in person in Tokyo.
Check out the video:
Next year, we will get the showdown of all showdowns, with Godzilla vs. Kong, but until then Godzilla: King of Monsters is in theaters, and if you happen to find yourself in Japan, there’s plenty of places to get your Godzilla fix.
