About This Item
Godzilla has traveled to many places over the past 50 years. Some places don't exist anymore (the Nichigeki Theater in Tokyo was torn down in early 1980s) and others (like Monster Island) are fictional so you won't be able to find those. Don't worry, there are plenty of other places to visit. I've tried to build a complete list but if you see someplace that I haven't listed, let me know (and in what film it appeared).
