How could Japan know about the power or even the possibility of an A-bomb? It was not on wikipedia yet.

Wikipedia wasn't needed - Japan's Nuclear Research Laboratory led by Dr. Yoshio Nishina at Riken Institute was well on its way to producing a nuclear weapon when the war ended, and unsubstantiated rumors state an actual test of a fission bomb took place near Konan in what is now North Korea on August 12th, 1945. If the IJA had acquired one or more atomic bombs before the surrender, do you think they would have used them for demonstration purposes?

No no, it clearly states "an assistant stationmaster, 57". An odd name to be sure (and an odd number as well), but who are we to judge?
