The invasion of Japan was a planned military action, called "Operation Downfall". This was to be the Allied forces invasion of Japan to end the Second World War. It would have two main parts, Operation Olympic to invade Kyūshū and Operation Coronet to invade Honshū. After the Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Japanese surrendered, so there was no need for an invasion. Operation Downfall was canceled.
