Yokkaichi

Yokkaichi (136.656E 34.983N) was an important regional port southwest of Nagoya. The population of 102,000 in 1944 was packed into the central 1.5 square miles of the city, which hosted the largest oil refinery in Japan. The Japanese Army maintained a secondary airfield here in 1941.

On 17-18 June 1945, the city was bombed by 313 Bombardment Wing, which dropped 567 tons of incendiaries. These destroyed 60 percent of the city.
