SciFi Japan is a fan-made website dedicated to tokusatsu. SciFi Japan consistently brings accurate and exclusive information on Japanese films and shows to English speaking fans worldwide.
Name[edit | edit source]
SciFi Japan's name is formed of "SciFi," a shortening of "science fiction," and "Japan," referencing its primary focus on Japanese tokusatsu films.
