Familiar Kyoto Places Revisited

Today was spent visiting some of familiar places. What I mean by "familiar" is that I visited them previously with G-TOUR 2004, but wanted Denise to see them.

The first, and one of my all-time favorites, was Kinkaku-ji "Golden Pavilion" in Kyoto.

The other, another favorite, was Kiyomizu-dera, also in Kyoto. It was menaced by Godzilla in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993).

Then, following the tour (by bus), we headed back to the JR Kyoto Station, the scene of the epic battle between Gamera and Irys in Gamera 3 (1999).

Across the street from JR Kyoto Station is the Kyoto Tower Hotel. The tower is the tallest structure in Kyoto. It was blasted by Godzilla in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II.

With the exception of Kinkaku-ji, the above places are covered in The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan.
