What in the WORLD? Ultraman on location at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park

March 7, 2014
RAHR!

The sweetest monster ever spotted at the end of Chain of Craters Road

Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park  works with dozens of film and still photo crews each year, everything from documentaries, fashion magazines, breaking news , and motion pictures. One of the most memorable and unusual productions was the Ultraman Hawai‘i shoot earlier this year – a promotion managed by Hawai‘i Tourism Japan (HTJ). Japan’s uber-famous Ultraman superhero characters were enlisted to encourage Japanese travel to Hawai‘i. HTJ launched the promotion yesterday, so we can now share a few “behind the scenes” shots on location here in the park:

Lights! Camera! Action Hero!

That's a WRAP!
