Godzilla and Kiyomizu-dera In Kyoto

Last night, I was in the mood to watch Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993). It has been a while since I last viewed it. It was one of the better Heisei Series of Godzilla movies.

The design of Mechagodzilla, in my opinion, was not a good as the original from the Showa Series or the most recent (if you want to call 14 years "recent"). The Godzilla suit and design used in the movie is one of my favorites. Still, the movie was entertaining and it was nice to see again.

In the movie, Godzilla blasts Kyoto Tower and menaces Kiyomizu-dera. Both are covered in The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan on page 43.

At least Godzilla had the respectful good sense to spare Kiyomizu-dera from destruction, so people can still visit it.
