I also have a website devoted to drinking, including Japanese sake and it’s always nice when these two hobbies of mine overlap.

In Japan they still make and sell promotional movie brochures in cinemas (they stopped selling them in the UK years ago).

I picked this one up for the 1998 American Godzilla movie starring Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno.

Godzilla and UFO Shrine, Awajishima, Hyogo

Posted on March 7, 2011  in Godzilla

On a recent trip to Awajishima Island, (just off the coast of Kobe, a small island in between Honshu and Shikoku), while driving up the low mountains there, I saw a sign for “UFO Shrine” a kilometer or so down the road.

Pretty soon, I turned a corner and had to slam on the brakes and pull over sharpish, as I saw this…

It seemed to be closed as there was no-one in the building and the car park was empty, but I’d love to know what goes on in there.
