Giant monsters gather in Nagoya
The Yomiuri Shimbun
NAGOYA — Masks, suits and miniatures of Godzilla, Ultraman, Gamera and many more — an exhibition under way at the Nagoya City Science Museum in Naka Ward, Nagoya, until Jan. 12 showcases about 500 items used in the filming of movies and TV series produced in Japan since the 1960s using tokusatsu special effects.
The exhibition, titled “Tokusatsu: Special Effects Museum,” was curated by anime director Hideaki Anno, who is known for his “Evangelion” anime series.
Notable in the exhibition is a reproduction of a storehouse that used to be in a film studio to hold these props and small sets.
