If you’ve spent time on the MyKaiju website over the years, you might notice how much I enjoy finding Godzilla places (ゴジラのロケ地). My trip to Japan in 2018 was all about visiting Shin Godzilla places. I documented them in the first issue of MyKaiju Magazine. I have found no better way to enjoy discovering Japan than taking journeys to these places. Along the way you learn more about Japanese culture, history and traditions. Each location is situated in its own context with significance. I’ve just returned home from Japan. I designed my itinerary around going to the most important Godzilla places. These locations are where Godzilla began, Odo Island. Godzilla’s 70th anniversary is quickly approaching and I thought there was no better way to commemorate our favorite monster’s first appearance than visiting the island locations. This is the first of a two-part blog. Travel with me to Odo Island.
