A greedy developer has placed huge machines to suck dry a part of the ocean near Tokyo so he can put luxury condos there. After a storm, a giant egg washes up on the beach nearby and is immediately put on public display. The developer's plans go awry when he disrupts Godzilla's rest and the monster goes stomping through Tokyo again. It's up to the elderly Mothra, and then to its two offspring, to save Tokyo from destruction.

The Mosugoji suit is a favorite among fans. After the more comedic approach to Godzilla in King Kong vs. Godzilla
(1962), Toho decided to return its big star back to his original, evil, marauding depiction for this film. The Mosugoji suit, designed by Teizô Toshimitsu
, was very different in appearance than its predecessor, Kingoji. Godzilla had less reptilian features than the Kingoji suit. The Mosugoji suit was also less bulky. The snout was slightly shorter, and the yellow around the pupils was changed to white. The tail was also made longer, and the skin featured a slight greenish tinge. See more

"I'm not as afraid of Godzilla as I am of the editor... he's meaner."
The "Frontier Missile" sequence is the only example of kaiju footage contained in foreign release prints but not in the original cut. This footage slightly alters the arrangement of events of the American and European versions. This footage was filmed at AIP's request and originally excluded from the Japanese cut to keep out the very patriotic American iconage of the scene. It is now featured as bonus material on the Japanese laserdisc. See more
