GINZA GODZILLA LOCATIONS! New Photos of Two Locations Demolished by The Big G!

During my trip to Ginza, I snapped new photos of familiar locations I've photographed countless times. The first location was the Hattori Clock Tower on the Wako Department Store, which was destroyed by Godzilla in Godzilla (1954). It was also briefly seen in another favorite film of mine, Kihachi Okamoto's Blue Christmas (a.k.a. Blood Type: Blue, 1978).

Following that, I moved on to the Yurakucho Mullion Building, which was featured in Godzilla (1984). Godzilla also destroys this building, and his reflection can be seen on the building as he carries the shinkansen train car in his hand.

The sun was just beginning to set as I was photographing the Yurakucho Mullion Building, and the pictures turned out rather well, if I may say so myself. They are below.
