Hiroshima is the capital of Hiroshima Prefecture, and the largest city in the Chūgoku region of western Honshu, the largest of Japan's islands.

Hiroshima in "Before the Beginning"Edit

Thanks to the time-viewer, the atomic bombing of Hiroshima looked no bigger than a lit match compared to the "forest fire" of the K-T Extinction, which in turn was unimpressive when set against the Permian-Triassic extinction.

Hiroshima in "Birdwitching"Edit

Megamagical sorceries of mass destruction swept two Nipponese cities off the map at the end of the Second Great Slaughter.

Hiroshima in Days of InfamyEdit

Hiroshima aftermath-1-
The United States' decision to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki crushed Reinhard Heydrich's hope that Japan's ongoing war against the US would drain America's resources enough to weaken its occupation of Germany. However, it gave him a new hope that his German Freedom Front could acquire such a bomb for itself.

Hiroshima in SupervolcanoEdit

The head offices of the ramen noodle manufacturer that Louise Ferguson worked for were located in Hiroshima. One day, several months after the Yellowstone Supervolcano had erupted, Mr. Nobashi spoke with HQ and then told Ferguson that the weather was very bad back in Japan. In Hiroshima there had been 30 cms or about one foot of snow. Normally the weather would be hot and sticky but not this year.[1]

The following year, the weather in Hiroshima was no better, being unusually cold and wet. It affected the harvest leading to wheat shortages which forced the ramen head office to raise prices in all its markets.[2] The U.S. economy continued to decline and in the spring, two and a half years after the eruption, the Hiroshima home office decided to close its U.S. operations.[3]
