Sasebo is a special port city of the Japan's Nagasaki Prefecture. The city has population of around 260,000 and includes part of the Saikai National Park. In the city's southern part is located the Huis Ten Bosch amusement park.
The city was founded in 1902. In 1945 it suffered severe damages (when almost half of the city was destroyed) during the June 29th US bombings. At the very end of WWII, Sasebo was among the 17 targets pre-selected by the USA (with the UK's consent) for the dropping of the uranium gun-type atomic bomb (named Little Boy).
With a population of around 260,000, current-day Sasebo City is a merger of Sasebo with Sechibaru and Yoshii (merged in 2005), Kosaza and Uku (merged in 2006) and Emukae and Shikamachi (merged in 2010). The port also has an active fleet of fishing vessels. The shipbuilding yard (Sasebo Heavy Industries Co) is adjacent to the naval base.
