Tokusatsu: Special Effects Museum

I ran across an article that discussed the exhibition ‘TOKUSATSU: Special Effects Museum-Craftsmanship of Showa and Heisei Eras Seen Through Miniatures’ at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.

What that means to you and me is: giant monsters attacking Japanese cities.

That's right - the miniature magic of this film genre has been recognized as an art form, with a suitable exhibition. The linked article gives the details, but not much in the way of visuals. Luckily, I was able to find some video footage from the SciFi Japan web site that filled in some gaps.
