Seagulls were flying all over this rock - interesting rock that really looks like some sort of Godzilla / dinosaur in the middle of the city. Interesting to see seagulls perched all over the rock - at first they're just white specks, then you realise...More

Might be a bit harsh (geologists out there get angry) but it's a large rock in the middle of town. Not something you'd go out of your way to see but if you're in town you'll see it anyway. There is an element of danger...More

If you want to see Gojiro then don't go through the tunnel. It's probably best viewed from the other side but through the tunnel it took me a while to make it out. It is rather the full shape of Gojiro rather than other Godzilla...More

Passed by the rock after boat trip. The shape of the rock is interesting and it was the habitat of crows. The crows were playing around the rick in the evening.

Godzilla Rock is near the wharf and is quite an interesting feature. The other rocks in the harbour area are also interesting.

Not worth going out of your way but if you are in shari it's a cute little find to walk to. The rock resembles godzilla, a tiny bit!

We passed by this rock on the way to the hotel, and said to each other, "Don't you think this rock look a lot like Godzilla?" We only realized the next day that people actually call this rock the Godzilla rock.

Its really quite 'cool', that from certain angles, it does have the profile of the famous movie-star monster. If you're a godzilla fan, swing by, it won't take more than a few minutes if you're on the way to the 5-lakes, or hiking thru bear-territory.

....it does look like Gojira. Worth about 10 seconds of your time on the way to a boat tour. But it's not like you'd drive here specially. There are a couple of nice shops and a decent spot for lunch nearby,

For me this is just a big rock with loads of seabirds. For others it might be one the symbols of Utoro? I did not know this was called Godzilla...
