This is an original Japanese poster printed in 1966 for the first release of Return of Daimajin. This poster is ULTRA rare.
In Japan, Daimajin is found on an island in the middle of a lake which is surrounded by the two peaceful villages, Chigusa and Nagoshi. In a distant third village ruled by an evil lord, the citizens flee to Chigusa to take refuge. One day the evil lord decides to take over the two villages and attempts to do so at an annual festival. After being pursued by the evil lord's army, the people of Chigusa and Nagoshi find themselves on the island with the Daimajin statue. The evil lord has his men shatter the statue with a large amount of gunpowder. Daimajin's shattered remains end up at the bottom of the lake. Daimajin awakens to inflict chaos to all around him, including the landscape and the evil lord. (Source Wikipedia)
