G-TOUR 4 2022

Daikaiju Enterprises is pleased to announce a return to Japan for G-TOUR 4, taking place from November 1st through November 12th, 2022. G-TOUR is the name given to a series of Godzilla-centric voyages to Japan and is an opportunity to visit iconic sites from kaiju cinema, soak up some of the country’s incredible natural beauty and culture, and engage in shopping experiences found nowhere else.

Four previous G-TOURs have taken place, in 2004, 2011, 2015, and 2016. (The one in 2016 was a Tokyo-only visit dubbed G-TOUR 3.5.) The three most recent have been organized by MYK Enterprises Ltd., an experienced niche-tour company with offices in both North America and Japan. MYK specializes in crafting small to medium-sized tours to the specific interests of the participants, and their G-TOUR specialist guide is well-versed in kaiju culture.

Most of the earlier G-TOURS were conducted at the height of summer, which offers many advantages, but summer is also a time of debilitatingly high heat and humidity in Japan. This time, the trip will take place in the late fall, which not only avoids the summer heat, but also offers a different view of Japan in its spectacular fall colors. It also coincides with Culture Day in Japan, which happens to be the anniversary of the release of the first Godzilla movie, and more recently, the day for staging the annual Godzilla Festival in Tokyo.

G-TOUR 4 offers a mix of traditional Japanese and kaiju culture (members can opt out of certain kaiju-themed day trips and will be provided alternative activities), urban and rural locales, and typical tourist fare contrasted with paths rarely traveled. The itinerary shown reflects these characteristics. This itinerary is confirmed, but it’s always possible that small changes might be made based on availability and unpredicted events.

The cost for G-TOUR 4 is ¥360,000 (at presstime, $3,262.00 per person based on double occupancy), not including airfare. Since participants will be departing for Japan from different cities, and may be wanting to use points from various plans, travel costs will vary and each passenger will need to make his or her own arrangements. MYK Travel will be happy to assist with airline matters.

Just as there’s nothing like seeing a Godzilla movie at G-FEST in the Pickwick Theater packed with G-fans, there’s nothing like touring Japan as part of a group of kaiju enthusiasts. Participation in G-TOUR 4 will be limited, so if you’d like to be part of it, get your application in early to make sure you don’t miss out on this “bucket list” event.
