Giant Monsters Appear in Tokyo (1988)
A devastating earthquake rocks the Kanto region as a fire-breathing dinosaur attacks Tokyo and a flying turtle devastates Fukuoka. As their rampages continue, it becomes clear that they will meet in Fukui Prefecture. With the JSDF helpless and U.S. aircraft carriers capsized by a tsunami triggered by the earthquake, the residents of Mikuni Town must decide where to evacuate. Neither monster appears onscreen in the film; instead, their activities are conveyed through a series of news reports.
