Movie monster Godzilla getting honored in Tokyo today , for all the great publicity it brought.

FOX News Radio's Alastair Wanklyn reports: 

It stomped on buildings and melted transmission towers with its fire breath. 

The 1954 monster now honored by the Tokyo district where its home, the Toho movie studio, is located. Officials appointing Godzilla a tourism ambassador.

A new movie is in the works here in Japan, and a Warner Brothers sequel is planned for 2018.

And, tourists in Tokyo beware: a giant Godzilla head now sticks out of a tall building here, with glowing eyes... and that screech.

In Tokyo, Alastair Wanklyn, FOX News Radio.
