CYCLONE! Ginza's Tokusatsu Bar Has the Goods!

Ginza is famous for many things, but tokusatsu bars isn't one of them. But, if you look carefully enough, you'll find the genre represented in all its glory. The tokusatsu bar called Cyclone is a great watering hole for anyone who loves to talk toku.

Owner Ryusuke Kuzuoka is a dedicated fan and collector, and he certainly knows his stuff. Much of his collection is on display at his bar, and the collectibles range from Kamen Rider to Super Sentai, from Metal Heroes to Ultraman, and (naturally) from Godzilla to Gamera.

I had a great time chatting with Kuzuoka-san at Cyclone tonight. It's great to meet other fans who share such a passion for a variety of movies and TV shows and not just the standard stuff everyone seems to be into.

Thank you very much, Kuzuoka-san!
