Satoshi Nagashima, who at that time was the Director of the Department for Reconstruction of the City of Hiroshima, submitted an ambitious plan for constructing large main roads basically to create jobs. Once jobs were created, it will lead to the incoming of people in the city. Yet, the progress of reconstruction was so slow, since the City’s budget for reconstruction at that time was only 56 million Japanese yen despite the estimate of 2.3 billion yen. The involvement of the national government was also required, but it was difficult without new legislations or laws. The City started constructing residential complexes and houses but they could not proceed due to shortage of labor. Only 392 houses were finally built initially (Miller, 1969). The rest 5000 houses as planned were constructed by various initiatives taken by the citizens at that time. When the reconstruction work began initially there was shortage of electricity and finances. It was getting pretty difficult day by day. In 1946 as the demand for industries began to rise the power shortage levels fell to critical levels. Finally it was 1949 when the loans were sanctioned to construct power plants.
