Live-action film makers use Tokusatsu (Japanese special effects) to produce amazing works. Sukagawa native Director Eiji Tsuburaya, known as the “God of Tokusatsu,” laid its foundation. Unfortunately, irreplaceable materials such as Tokusatsu miniature models have been destroyed or lost, and fewer people today are aware of Tokusatsu techniques.
Sukagawa Tokusatsu Archives Center plays a vital role in passing on Tokusatsu technology to future generations. We will collect, preserve, restore and conduct research on valuable materials related to Tokusatsu. We will also promote and honor Tokusatsu culture. Our visitors can take full advantage of the Center and view our selective collection from film shoots.
Shinji Higuchi, a film and special effects director, created this guide map.
