Wouldn’t we have to wait 10,000 years because of the nuclear fallout. Isn’t this area uninhabitable ?

Both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs were airbursts, where the nuclear fireball didn't touch the ground. While there was fallout, it was substantially less than would have been the case if the bombs were groundburst and any radiation remaining has long since decayed to safe levels.

Both cities were rebuilt and are currently inhabited.
