The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan: Contents
by Armand Vaquer
The Monster Movie Fan's Guide to Japan is divided into four sections: General Information, Hokkaido, Honshu and Kyushu. The locations used in the movies are placed at the Japanese island where they can be found. For example: Sapporo was used in Gamera 2 and is located on the island of Hokkaido. The same goes for kaiju-related or attractions of interest to the monster fan traveler.
Each location or attraction will indicate what movie it was used, how to get there and, if available, where to stay. Recommendations on where to stay will be included after a history of the location and how to get there. Source(s) for finding a hotel or ryokan are provided. If I had stayed at a hotel or ryokan at any of these places, I will indicate such and make a recommendation.
The Table of Contents (below) shows which island each location or attaction is located.
