"Shin Godzilla" Landmarks To Be Added

The primary reason that the updated edition of The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan hasn't been published is that I needed to see what locations were used in Shin Godzilla so I can include them.

There are several locations that can be added, most notably historic Tokyo Station and the Tokyo Bay area near Yokohama and the Tama River.

One notable location was used again in Shin Godzilla: the Wako Department Store in Ginza. It was first demolished in the original 1954 Godzilla, then vaporized in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995) and now it gets sliced by Godzilla's energy beam in Shin Godzilla. While it is getting sliced, the Mitsukoshi Department Store across the street is also getting sliced. I will have to make note of this in the new edition of The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan.

In the meantime, I will be further studying the movie on Blu-ray for more possible locations to be added.
