Any Kaiju flicks that have any scenes in Nagasaki?

Postby TripMasterMunky » Sun Dec 16, 2012 10:11 pm

I'm going to be studying abroad in Nagasaki for a year starting next fall. Any kaiju flicks that have scenes there or anything? I can't remember any off hand, so I'm just curious. Wouldn't mind seeing how they portray the area or seeing if they have Nagasaki dialect in the language.

Thanks.

I think that area and Hiroshima have been untouched for obvious reasons in kaiju flicks. No worries though, once you're on the mainland in Japan, traveling to places where there were kaiju will be easy!!!

Congrats man! One of the reasons I joined the Air Force Reserves after getting out of active duty was in the hope that I'd get to go back to Japan on the government's dime someday lol.

Yeah that's what I kinda figured.

Thanks. Yeah I went to Japan for the first time a little over a year ago for a few weeks. Now I'm going to be going there for a year as a university student. I remember reading somewhere that you said you were stationed there for like...2 years was it? Where in Japan were you at? If you want to just PM me too that's fine.

Hiroshima was briefly shown in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991). Ghidorah makes a fly-by with the Atomic Dome in the foreground in one scene.
