So I found this. I know it's not Godzilla related, but it's cool.

"The Japanese take their kaiju very seriously. The artisans literally pour their heart and soul into their creations; just as the actors performing inside of them form a bond with the latex "skin" they wear. So when it comes time to bid farewell, it's a melancholic occasion akin to burying your loved ones. On April 22nd, 1973, a "Monster Memorial" of sorts was held at Futakotamagawa Gardens in Tokyo. A number of apparently well-worn monster suits were laid to rest by cremation, and buried in front of a crowd of spectators. In attendance were Shin Kishida and Mutsumi Gori (both men are visible in bottom right photo). Shinoda Saburo of ULTRAMAN TARO was also among the mourners."
