My son is thrilled! After 61 years Godzilla has been given citizenship status in Japan and a job. He is now the tourism ambassador for the Shinjuku ward.
The honors continue. Godzilla was honored by a replica of his head placed on top of the Toho Cinema building (Toho brought the first Godzilla movie in 1954)

In more good news Toho is planning a new Godzilla movie to be released in 2016. Of course the American sequel to the 2014 Godzilla is planned for 2018. So 2 new movies! YES!
Apparently there are 5,000 copies of Godzilla’s residency papers that are being given out first come first served (If anyone can get one for me please let me know. My son’s birthday is coming up)

So there you have it! After 61 years of awesome Godzilla is now being recognized as a Japanese citizen!
