The actor's association with the kaiju genre continued right until his death, as he helped announce the production of The Return of Godzilla at a Tokyo press conference, but unfortunately Akihiko was too ill to appear in the film, and the part would eventually go to Yosuke Natsuki, who had appeared alongside Akihiko in Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster in 1964.
