The 31st “Godzilla” Is Here!
Yes, the world’s greatest movie monster is back! For the 31st time, Japan cinemas has fans roaring in delight at the latest “Godzilla” film – first, check out the trailer!
“Godzilla” is an icon in Japan – so much so that one of the hotels actually put the beast on its roof – the hotel where my son Jeff stayed!
The Hotel Gracery, located in Shinjuku’s Kabuki-Cho district, put the monster on top of the Hotel’s reception floor, and inside, you could get a closeup look at the beast, which Alex and I jumped at the chance to do:
A Wall Of Godzilla!
Also inside the lobby was an exhibit that had T-shirts, DVD of earlier films, and a wall that had posters of all 31 films, classic movie posters like these:
The latest Godzilla looks muscular and brawn, with just enough “retro” look to pay homage to what makes these films so iconic: wild plots with a mix of great action and campy special effects…
This fun “Godzilla” exhibit had me interested in seeing the new film, which opens July 25th in Japan…
I also had some other fun in Tokyo as well…
I Got Plasticized!
We checked out Tokyo’s famous Kappabashi district, with the realistic plastic food! See more here:
I also had a memorable meal at a restaurant that added a special treat: a live performance!
Check out my musical bento box adventure here:
In addition to bento boxes, I also had the chance to have “sushi for breakfast!”
Alex, Jeff and I ate sushi for breakfast at Tokyo’s legendary fish market – here are some great behind-the-scenes videos:
Finally, I came to Tokyo four times with G4, and one memorable visit saw our Host Alex Sim-Wise become an Astronaut’s wife:
Check out her wild experience as a Tokyo Bar Hostess here:
Let me know if you have seen any of Japan’s legendary Godzilla films!

I have seen the original 1954 film, then Godzilla v King Kong, and Godzilla v Mothra. They were all dubbed, as I recall. Other than the 1998 US film with Matthew Broderick, I haven’t seen many from the very long list, it seems. Great to see the creature on the hotel, it looks really good.
Best wishes, Pete.

Pete, the Japanese LOVE their monster, and they have a much better handle on how to handle the horror vs. slight camp nature of it…our “Godzilla” films have missed the mark wildly…thanks for the comment!
