Izu Oshima (伊豆大島 is a volcanic island in the Izu Islands. It both featured in in the Izu-ōshima)1984 and 1989 Godzilla film, The Return of Godzilla and Godzilla vs. Biollante
The Return of Godzilla
When the the second Godzilla attacked Japan, it was determined the monster possessed a homing instinct similar to that of birds, and to this end a plan was formulated to use this against him. Doctor Makoto Hayashida began work on a transmitter capable of luring Godzilla to the island, with the intent of trapping him inside Mount Mihara. After determining the volcano would pose no danger to the island, dozens of explosive devices were strategically placed around the volcano's crater in order to create a controlled eruption. Later, Hayashida and Hiroshi Okumura arrived at the island by helicopter, carrying the completed transmitter. Upon the device's activation, Godzilla left Tokyo and headed towards the island. Climbing to the mountain's summit, he curiously stared at the transmitter's broadcasting dish before stumbling into the crater. The explosives were then detonated, sending Godzilla falling into the volcano.
Godzilla vs. Biollante
Five years after Godzilla was trapped in Mount Mihara on the island, the American terrorist group and genetics corporation Bio-Major planted explosives inside of the volcano's crater. They issued an ultimatum to the Japanese government, stating if they did not give up the Anti-Nuclear Energy Bacteria they would detonate the charges and release Godzilla. The government conceded to these demands, but the exchange was interrupted by Saradian agent SSS9, causing the explosives to go off, with Godzilla emerging from the crater.
