Best Answer

Tokyo was bombed by conventional bombers. The Emperor's Palace, was off limits. If the Emperor had been killed, Japan would not have surrendered even with atomic weapons. And we did use our last two bombs on Hiroshima & Nagasaki (the first bomb was a test bomb in New Mexico in July 1945). The invasion of Japan was scheduled to go; before any other atomic weapons would have been ready for use. It was the Emperor who approved the final surrender of Japan-against the Japanese Army who wanted to fight to the last man.
