The United States had drawn up plans to bomb Japan in 1940 using military bases in China. Before the attack on Pearl Harbor the US was setting up to heavily bomb Japanese cites. Light bombers did not work so the air force switched to the B-29 heavy bombers designed (in 1943) to be based in China (see Operation Matterhorn). They did arrive in China but those bases were captured by the Japanese army, so the B-29s were moved to the Pacific in 1944. The B-29s bombed Japan very heavily as per the original 1940 plan.
