“Godzilla, a Japanese Monster Film Released in 1954”

Godzilla is a Japanese monster film released in 1954. While known as “Gojira (ゴジラ)” in Japan, it adopted the name “Godzilla” when exported to the United States in 1956. In South Korea, the term “Godzilla” became widely recognized with the 1998 American remake of the original Japanese film. With a history dating back to 1954, Godzilla is considered a pioneer in the kaiju (monster) film genre, and its enduring popularity has led to various marketing efforts featuring Godzilla in Japan. In Tokyo’s Kabukicho district, for example, there is even a street adorned with “Godzilla Heads.”
