In the same year, the Japanese launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, killed 2,500 and 12 ships were sunk. Then, US and partners declared war on Japan.
Refused Allied Requests for their surrender.
The defeat of Germany and Italy at the end of the Second World War convinced the Japanese
that they could not hold onto longer at the Pacific front. Her armies were in a disarray, her
navy was destroyed, and her depleting resources were a no match to the immense resources
of the USA, who joined the war on the Allied side and made it highly impossible for the
Japanese to win the war. The Japanese armies pushed forward to break the stalemate on the Pacific Front, but could not a breakthrough. The weariness and disagreement between the war leaders created both a political and military stalling of decisions on the issue of handling the question of surrendering to the Allies, whose vast resources and expert blockading of vital routes throughout the Pacific made it almost impossible for the Japanese to secure the much-needed resources to replenish their armies.
The decision to launch an invasion of Japan was taken in the historic Potsdam Declaration, where the Allied powers wanted to bring a swift end to the war. Japan, the tiny Pacific Island with its goals of achieving mastery over the Pacific, was considerably weakened by the constant assault of Allied troops on its armies, cities and the civilian population. The bombing of Japan’s industrial units meant that her armies could now have only limited supplies, which would not be enough for a decisive victory against the allies. The Prime Minister of Japan advised his military council of an all-out war using the remaining resources and armed Japanese forces, which could weaken the Allies. Surrender would mean that Japan would lose her prestige among the eyes of the civilians, and her leaders could be tried as war criminals. Moreover, the Allied Nations with their democratic institutions and western political structures could severely compromise the authority and prestige of Emperor Hirohito. The military council’s decision to fight till the last man standing was not received favorably by civilians, who fled the Japanese towns and villages, leading to a lack of faith in the armed forces. This lack of manpower to undertake industrial operations dealt a serious blow to the Japanese war effort, which ultimately culminated in their defeat by the Allies. When the Japanese refused to surrender due to unfavorable terms,
the USA and United Kingdom decided to drop two atomic bombs on the cities of Hiroshima
and Nagasaki, which brought about a swift end to the war.

B. Refused Allied requests for their surrender.
Although the Japanese military leaders put up a brave front and pledged to fight till the end, secret negotiations were taking place between the Japanese leaders and Russia, Britain and the USA, where she entreated the allies to draft up formal peace negotiations that would be more favorable to the Japanese. However, Russia was secretly entrusted with the task of invading Japanese territories in South Manchuria and Korea, along with the Sakhalin Islands, and the USA and Britain secretly planned to drop two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to bring the war to an end quickly and bring Japan to surrender. The lack of favorable terms in the peace treaty were holding back the Japanese military armed men to surrender formally.
The decision to launch an invasion of Japan was taken in the historic Potsdam Declaration, where the Allied powers wanted to bring a swift end to the war. Japan was also pressing the Allied powers for favorable terms of surrender, however, a secret deal was made between the Allied powers, by which Russia would invade the Japanese territories in Manchuria and the Southern Sakhalin Islands, according to the terms of the Yalta Conference. The Potsdam Declaration presented Japan with either immediate surrender or utter destruction. The Japanese military leaders consistently denied Allied's appeal for unconditional surrender. When the Japanese denied surrender due to unfavorable terms, the USA and United Kingdom decided to drop two atomic bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which brought about a sudden termination to the war. Depleted of resources and manpower, Japan's naval forces were completely in disarray, her army reduced, her industries and natural resources destroyed. The atomic bombings prompted Japan's immediate surrender after Emperor Hirohito ordered his Supreme War Council to accept the terms of Surrender. The Treaty of San Francisco formally terminated the war between the Japanese and the Allies, and the Soviet- Japanese Joint Declaration ended the long-standing hostilities between Japanese and the Soviet Union

The surrender of Japan was announced on August 151945 and was formally signed the same year on September 2. This surrender by Japan brought world-War 2 to end. The reason behind this surrender was that the Japanese Navy was incapable of conducting major naval operations on invasion made by allied powers on Japan and their loss was imminent. Before August 1945, Military officials from Japan refused to accept the fact that Japan can lose the war and they denied requests made by allied powers in regards to the surrender of Japan. But with increasing force of Allied powers in Japanese coast led military officials to discuss surrender and on August 9, the first meeting took place between Japanese military officials to discuss surrender but that went on debate and the Japanese cabinet was split over the decision of surrender. Anami told Japanese officials that an American jet pilot after being tortured has told them that the United States has 100 atomic bombs and are planning to bomb Tokyo in next few days and from fear of that, Japanese military officials agreed to surrender as they already had witnessed damage done by two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
