I undersand you mistrust us... but even as we speak, many people are losing their lives to Godzilla. There are many good people among them, but even bad ones have the right to live. You may call it God's punishment, but all people are equal before God. God plays no favorites.

Mothra vs. Godzilla

While photographing a recent flood in the Japanese countryside with her mentor Ichiro Sakai, Junko discovered an interesting piece of shrapnel in the wreckage that they decided to take with them. They were called away from the flood story to investigate an enormous egg that had come ashore in the flood. When there, she met Shunsuke Miura, who at first wanted nothing do do with the reporters, but quickly warmed up to answering a few questions after being set up by Junko. They were quickly approached by a businessman who told them that he owned the egg, and the continued the interview at a hotel lobby, where they noticed the businessman checking in. Ichiro then went to listen to his conversation with his boss, but was forced to leave, and in the surrounding forest he met up with Junko and Miura and they were approached by the Shobijin. The fairies begged Junko and her friends to get the egg back to Mothra, and Ichiro began to write stories about the injustice of the egg's purchase, accompanied by Junko's photographs. Much to the dismay of all parties involved in the deal, the stories had no effect on the situation, and the Shobijin returned to Infant Island empty handed. Around that time, laboratory results from Miura came in about the piece of strange shrapnel they found in the floodplain: it was radioactive. The three then went back to the floodplain to take more tests, but Godzilla rose out of the ground and cut their tests short. The three then traveled to Infant Island to get Mothra's help in defeating Godzilla to keep the egg, and the people safe. After a bit of convincing, the Infant Islanders agreed to the loan of Mothra, and she came to defend her egg. During the fighting, It became known to them that a teacher and ten students were trapped on the island where the monsters were, and they sailed out to rescue them. after the larval Mothras defeated Godzilla, Junko and the others watched them swim away victorious.
