Lake Ikeda (池田湖 is a caldera lake located 40 kilometers south of Ikeda-ko)Kagoshima city on Kyūshū Island, Japan. It appears in the 2001 Godzilla film, Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack.
History[edit | edit source]
A group of teenagers disturbed Mothra's shrine after robbing a convenience store near Lake Ikeda. Mothra awakened and pulled the teenagers underwater, wrapping their bodies in a cocoon of silk. Mothra then encased herself in a cocoon which sat on the lake's surface. Groups of people began to congregate around the lake, observing and sometimes praying to the strange cocoon. Eventually, as Godzilla approached Yokohama, the cocoon split open and Mothra emerged in her imago form before flying off to confront Godzilla.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Mothra's appearance in Lake Ikeda in Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack may be a reference to Issie, a cryptid said to live under the lake.
