Introducing Emiko! In Japanese, the name Emiko means “smiling child”. Clearly, Emiko’s parents have quite the sense of humor.
Emiko also shares her name with Emiko Yamane, the archeologist’s daughter in GODZILLA (1954). Actress Momoko Kochi, who played Emiko Yamane, reprised her role in Tako Okawara’s GOJIRA VS. DESTROYER (1995). Director Okawara was impressed with Kochi’s acting prowess; all her scenes were wrapped in a single day.
