My Japan trip was full of surprises. I was honored to be invited by Edward Holland of Monster Attack Time to see Shin Godzilla along with his friends that include kaiju illustrator Hiroshi Kanatani and Taichiro Kubota. To my surprise Kubota-san was a Shin Godzilla extra twice! You can see the roles he played in the picture below. He actually made the cut! After taking in the movie we had a round of soba, climbed Hotel Gracier to see Godzilla, and visited the Shin Godzilla statue in Shinjuka. I want to thank Edward and each of his friends for a great time. They made my movie experience most memorable.
