The countdown continues to the release of Godzilla King of the Monsters on this Thursday, May 30. Last night the red carpet was rolled out for its premiere in Hollywood. Also yesterday, to celebrate the movie the Godzilla Store has popped up at seven Kinokuniya Bookstores locations across the country: New Jersey, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Carrollton, and Austin.

So I took to my car and headed to Edgewater, NJ, early Saturday morning. I arrived about an hour after Kinokuniya opened. Godzilla fans, having already secured desired items, were waiting for more. There was something for every fan and collector: books, figures, postcards, clear files, socks, and more.
I picked up several items including the long-sought-after cable bite. The pricing was reasonable. A fan could do some damage to their wallet and build up their collection.
Kinokuniya is a great Japanese bookstore to have in your town. I have been going to the Edgewater store since 1993. It is exciting to see the Godzilla Store get outside of Japan. I hope the Godzilla Store will find permanent locations in cities across the U.S. And I hope that you get to go to the Godzilla Store in the near future.
