Omuta

Omuta (130.44E 33.05N) is a port and rail junction on Kyushu. The population in 1944 was about 180,000. The city was a center of the Japanese chemical industry, particularly synthetic oil, explosives, and fertilizer, as well as a coke manufacturing center. It was the most important coal port in Japan.

On 17-18 June 1945 the city was bombed by 58 Bombardment Wing, which dropped 770 tons of incendiaries. However, the attack was mostly ineffective, destroying just 4.1 percent of its urban area.
