Boeing B-29 Superfortress over Yawata

Boeing B-29 Superfortress over Yawata
The original wartime picture described this as a picture of a B-29 Superfortress over Yawata, a small city between Osaka and Kyoto. However the lay of the land doesn't match Yawata, but instead fits Yahata, now a suburb of Kitakyushu, on the island of Kyushu. The small inlet in the centre of the picture with the small diagonal docks still exists.
