My memory is a bit sketchy. ;-) Either way I was on a mission. To meet Godzilla desu!!!
Every few months the major airlines in Japan have ichi maan sales. No not an icthy man, but rather a flight anywhere in Japan for an ichi man, or about 100 dollars. (at least at the time it was worth about that much). Living in a rice field meant we had a craving for city life, and who doesn’t love Tokyo. So we booked our flights, Tokyo and then Okinawa it was. Hurray! Godzilla here I come!
Frantically trying to locate him according to Lonely Planet:
The problem was we WERE where Godzilla should be, and yet we kept missing him. Had he gone off on a rampage to terrorize the sewer rats?
Because as it turned out, that would be about all everyone’s favorite giant lizard would be terrorizing.
something was missing:
Next time I will read the guide closer to discover that missing him is common due to the belief that a monster that stomps buildings should be able to umm, well, step on them?
That of course did not stop me from going into Godzilla mode the rest of the holiday, including spontaneous outbreaks in stores:
Even if my dragon drink was scarier, or for that matter the bubbly shrimp concoction we had in Okinawa.
