The Japan Society of Northern California jumped on the news about Godzilla's "appointment" as tourism ambassador for Shinjuku, Tokyo over at Twitter. Their Tweet is shown above.
In only 16 more days, their "In The Footsteps of Godzilla" event will be held in San Francisco that includes a theatrical screening of the original 1954 movie that started it all, a discussion of Godzilla movies (with an emphasis on their real-life locations and landmarks) and a V.I.P. dinner.

Speaking of movie locations, I will have copies of The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan available. If you want to get a copy, this would be a good time to do so!
