Haruo Nakajima Book Details
by Armand Vaquer and Sonoe Nakajima
I received some details on the new book by our favorite Godzilla suit actor, Haruo Nakajima from his daughter Sonoe.
Sonoe's English is limited and instead of trying to correct what she wrote (and possibly mess it up in the process), I will post verbatim on what she said. You will get a pretty good idea on what the autobiography contains.
Report From Sonoe Nakajima:

The book sounds very interesting. Hopefully, an American publisher can be enlisted to publish an English language edition in the United States.
