    thanks for your Tokyo report!

  2. This theme music matched with the freaky “monsters” is hysterical! I looked this up, curious when it was made (1960s). It’s really hard to believe that Japan has some of the lowest levels of drug use in the world.

    You are so creative Stephen!! I have never seen Tokyo monsters! Thank you : )
    Unique video!!

    • hahaha! glad you liked it, Judy. I’m a total sucker for Japanese monster movies … the older the better. They’re so lo-tech, they’re awesome. It’s kind of neat to see what they did before CGI and computerized special effects. Some people call them cheesy, but I think they’re the ultimate in fun!

    I used to watch Ultraman on TV every week when I was very young. It reminds me of the era of high growth in Japan

      BTW, how did you know Ultraman? I thought only Japanese know him.

      • Hi Happy Yuan … glad you like my Ultraman post.
        I grew up in Philadelphia, a big city on the East Coast of the United States. The public TV station there showed international children’s entertainment on Saturday mornings, so I watched classic Ultraman and AstroBoy; they also showed a lot of comedies from England and Mexico and science fiction shows like Doctor Who. So I’ve loved Ultraman since I was a kid. I still love Ultraman.
