Granted it’s not a perfect look, because aside from the near nuclear meltdown of a couple of nuclear reactors at a power plant in Fukushima-ken, and a couple of its cities getting blasted to atoms by bombs during WWI… oh, and a ship and its crew being the first ever live people exposed to the radiation from nuclear bomb testing in the 1950s, Japan has never been exposed to the type of radiation that could ever spawn a monster like Godzilla.
Hmm… wait. That’s a helluva lot of exposure to deadly radiation.
|The first Godzilla movie shows the sad result of what nuclear weaponry can do to Japan.|
PS: Thanks to Matthew for the heads up.
