Japan (日本,   Nihon) is a country in the far east of Asia. An archipelago made up of over 6,500 islands, Japan's capital city is Tokyo. As a result of Japan being the 'home country' for Toho and countless other film studios, it is the birthplace of the kaiju genre of movies and popular kaiju such as Godzilla and Gamera. It is also home to tokusatsu heroes such as Ultraman.


  • Every Toho-produced Godzilla film has been set at least partially in Japan, with the exception of Son of Godzilla. Among the four American-made Godzilla films, however, only Godzilla (2014) has included scenes in Japan, none of them involving Godzilla himself.
