Hiroshima (広島市 is the capital of Hiroshima Prefecture, and the largest city in the Chūgoku region of western Honshu, the largest island of Hiroshima-shi)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 Enola Gay 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.
History[edit | edit source]
In the closing days of World War II in Europe, Hitler's Nazi's seized the immortal heart of Frankenstein's monster from the laboratory of Dr. Liesendorf and began transporting it to the Pacific Ocean aboard a U-boat. The heart was transferred to the Imperial Japanese Navy just before the U-boat was destroyed by the American Navy, and taken to a military hospital in Hiroshima. There, scientists began to study the heart and its incredible capacity for survival. However, on August 6, 1945, the U.S. dropped the atomic bomb "Little Boy" onto the city, destroying the hospital and causing the heart to be lost.
15 years later, Dr. James Bowen and his colleague Sueko Togami discovered a feral boy wandering the streets of Hiroshima. They brought the boy into their laboratory and began to study him, and discovered that he had regenerated from the heart of Frankenstein, which was directly exposed to the detonation of the atomic bomb. While in captivity, Frankenstein began growing rapidly to gigantic size and escaped the laboratory before fleeing Hiroshima.

- 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.
