Shimizu-mon Gate, part of Tokyo's Imperial Palace, also played a role in Destroy All Monsters. Photo by Brett Homenick.
Shimizu-mon Gate was the site of panicking Tokyoites in the film Submersion of Japan (1973). With this location, you get two for the price of one!

I'm working on photographing more locations from Destroy All Monsters and other films. As always, keep it here for further updates.
