Climbing Mt. Fuji Pt. 6

So there I was in the middle of the crater with nothing but snow and ice. A few small clouds climbed over the edge of the crater and swirled about a little bit before climbing out again. It was perfect peace under the pale blue sky.  Until....suddenly the ground started shaking under my feet. My first thought was that it was an earthquake, so I made a mad dash for the edge of the crater. It was hard to stand as the mountain trembled. I finally made it to the edge when the shaking got worse and worse. People started screaming and running down the side of the mountain! Was it going to explode? And then it happened....there was a large explosion in the center of the crater and out came not lava, but the head of...GODZILLA!!!! OH MY GOD!!! His screams nearly burst my eardrums as the sky turned a fiery red and I ran for my life.

To be continued......

Thank-you for checking out my blog.

    1. Yea! I have seen it in Shinjuku. It looks cool! When I hear the sounds, it's like I'm in a Godzilla movie. I imagine everyone running through the streets, but instead you just see many foreigners standing around gawking with their mouths open. ha ha ha
