A quiet night has settled over Tokyo again, after Godzilla's roaring outrage over its international appropriation could be heard throughout Roppongi (and the world).
Marching through the streets, Godzilla - its facial expression set to scare - brooded over its role in popular culture and Japanese folklore.
Would its beloved Japanese people still love it as one of their own? Fear it? Respect it? Welcome it back into their hearts?
How could they not? After all, Godzilla makes such a wonderful photo-op.
Fans from Japan, Italy, Germany and many other countries came to pay their tribute to this wonderful incarnation of nature's timeless spirit. And so did I, finding knowing smiles and shared admiration among the world's "Godzilla Whisperers".
Hope to see you again, ゴジラ
