Who decided to drop the atomic bomb?

The ultimate decision to use the bomb or not lay with the President of the United States. The bomb was originally built to use on Germany. Once it was defeated they had to consider whether or not to use it on Japan to motivate them Japanese leaders to surrender and capitulate to the Potsdam Declaration. Based on all the information provided to President Truman he chose to drop the bombs in the hopes of ending the war and avoid having millions of Japanese and Allied Forces killed in an mainland invasion. He had to weigh the advantage of murdering hundreds of thousand Japanese over the loss of millions people from Japan, the USA, Australia and other countries. He opted for the lesser of two evils. At the time the bombs were dropped they had no guarantee the bombs would even work or motivate the Japanese to surrender. The Allied Forces did not learn until years later that the Japanese were building the atomic bomb and had planned to use it on the United States. So It is likely the decision to drop the bombs prevented the Japanese from using them on the USA.

It was justified to drop the atomic bomb on Japanese cities?

Yes. if we hadn't dropped the bombs on the Japanese, then we would've had to invade Japan, costing the US millions of lives.
