Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in Japan.

The United States dropped two atomic bombs on cities in Japan, leading to a Japanese surrender in World War II.

The first bomb, named Little Boy, was dropped on Hiroshima, on the island of Honshu, on August 6, 1945.

Three days later, on August 9, 1945, the second bomb, Fat Man, was dropped on the city of Nagasaki, on Kyushu island in extreme southwest Japan.

These have been the only military uses of nuclear weapons in conflict. There have been multiple uses of nuclear weapons by many countries for test purposes.
