A Beautiful Yamato Nadeshiko


Yuriko Hishimi

“Earth Destruction Directive: Godzilla vs Gigan”


Sexy and beautiful Yamato Nadeshiko, a third-dan karate player.

Yamato nadeshiko is a Japanese term meaning the “personification of an idealized Japanese woman” (Source: Wikipedia)


Yuriko Hishimi is best known for her role as Anne Yuri in the 1967 film Ultra Seven, but five years later she appeared in Godzilla vs. Gigan. She was 24 years old at the time of filming. Here, she plays the role of Tomoko Tomoe, the girlfriend and manager of the main character (a struggling manga artist), and is a third-dan karate player who hates insects. Through her efforts, she once repelled an alien attack, but the truth is that the alien was actually a cockroach-like creature. She has become more sexy and attractive than in “~Seven.”
