Hiroshima  (広島市,   Hiroshima-shi?) is the capital of Hiroshima Prefecture, and the largest city in the Chūgoku region of western Honshu, the largest island of Japan. It is best known as the first city in history to be targeted by a nuclear weapon when the United States Army Air Forces' (USAAF) B-29 Superfortress dropped an atomic bomb called "Little Boy" on the city at 8:16 a.m. on August 6, 1945, near the end of World War II, killing 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima.

TriviaEdit

  • The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki inspired Ishiro Honda when making the original Godzilla. Honda, who witnessed the devastation of the bomb, wanted to portray the same destruction caused by an atomic bomb through Godzilla's rampage.
