Notice To Godzilla Fans In Japan

by Armand Vaquer Above, Yuu Asakura with the first edition of The Monster  Movie Fan's Guide To Japan . Photo by Armand Vaquer. A few minutes ago, I posted the following at several Godzilla and kaiju-related groups at Facebook: If there's anyone in Japan or is about to go to Japan in the immediate future and sees "Shin Godzilla", I need a list of locations featured in the movie to incorporate them in the next edition of "The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan". I will note contributors in the acknowledgments page. Thanks! In case anyone in Japan who reads this, but doesn't have a Facebook account, the offer is extended to you here. My email address is AMVaquer[at] No spammers, please! Thank you!

Monster Japan Travel Guide Update

Things are progressing on the new, updated edition of The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan . I have selected the publishing program, the publisher and most of it is written. I am waiting, at present, for more information on the new Toho Pictures production of Shin Godzilla (to be called Godzilla Resurgence outside of Japan). Also, I am trying to decide on what photograph to use on the cover. Maybe I'll post a poll or survey of some kind involving Godzilla fans to see what photo they like. Above, the life-size Godzilla in Shinjuku will be also included in the new edition. Photo by Armand Vaquer. I have contacted director Shinji Higuchi for information on the locations and/or landmarks used in the movie so that they can be included. Fans would then be able to go to those places when they visit Japan. Stay tuned!
