There is a 'Godzilla Hotel' in Tokyo which has — what else? — a Godzilla room, complete with Godzilla's hand sticking out of the ceiling, an animatronic Godzilla head, and various other things on display.
People in America who want to visit a Godzilla store don't have to go to Japan. There is a store called Monster Island Toys in Chicago. This store has models of Godzilla normally sold only in Japan, which the store owner has especially imported from Japan.
For those of you with a compulsive need to buy a Godzilla T-shirt, not to worry, there are a number of Godzilla stores around Japan. Here is a store in Tokyo
Below is a video of a Godzilla store in Osaka. Everyone needs a five-foot-tall Godzilla plastic model, don't they? They even have Godzilla hot sauce for your dining pleasure. (Would you pay $12,000 US for a metal bust of Godzilla?)
Richard Chamberlain played the main character John Blackthorn in the movie Shogun. Here is a video of him being interviewed about his role in the movie. During the interview, he gives a good deal of insight into the Japanese culture.
I read Shogun in 6th or 7th grade and was spellbound by it. The miniseries didn't quite live up to James Clavell's writing but it was worth a watch when I got sick and stayed home for several days.

Anyone who is interested in Japan or planning to visit Japan absolutely must read the book Shogun. Copies of it are available at my local used-book store in America for as little as four dollars. In addition, the book can be viewed for free as an e-book on the website linked to below. I used my public library ID and I was able to pull up the book.
