Bombings took place August 6 and then another one August 9. Japan surrendered September 2.

If nuclear bombings were the reason for Japanese surrender, why did it take them 22 days to surrender?

Prior to nuclear bombings Japanese had 68 cities destroyed in conventional bombings, some had even more casualties than Hirosima and Nagasaki, so they were used to bombings, and fancy new bombs could not scare the Japanese to surrender. So what was the reason behind Japanese surrender?

Two cities that were disappeared in an instant… Doesn’t take a genius to decide your country will eventually disappear if it’s not stopped via surrender…

I checked history in browser, I did in fact. No idea how it happened, guess I wasn't paying attention and was focused on the subject. Can you move it to anything else please.
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

The Soviet Union also declared war on Japan after the bombs dropped; they were going to invade Japanese occupied Manchuria.

They couldn't figure out if the U.S. had more nukes ir how long it would take to make more.

That was a major part of it, from my limited understanding of the situation.
The Japanese culture was also very much against the concept of surrender, so it took them awhile to come around to a new way of thinking.

Japan was far more advanced than the USA in Atomic/Nuclear research.

Japan and Germany were losing the war and didn't have any space or ressources to manufacture an atomic weapon.

The USA took the lead and we're the first one to us it.

Japan culture of war was fierce against surrendering.

But Japan leaders wanted to preserve the futur of the country.

Japan knew that the USA could just Nuke them up... basically have no fights + Japan was going on a food/energy crisis + Russia declare War etc.

They knew they lost and would die without a fight thanks to nuke. Thus Surrendering

I wonder if it was the japs to have nukes first and after seeing the effect of the first one, would drop a second one.

In my opinion all major parties would have thrown the first one on their enemies, not sure about the second.

The Japanese were merciless warriors. I'm sure they would have dropped as many as they could to effect surrender.

There's nothing different or "special" about America that caused us to drop a second one. The prospect of losing another several hundred thousand of our own men to defeat Japan was reason enough to throw another one. And we would have thrown a third in September or October, I'm sure.

We must never forget that it's easy to Monday morning quarterback decades later. The decisions that were made were made by people who were weary and shocked from 4 years of global warfare brought about mostly by Germany and Japan. It had to end by any means necessary.

War is about ruthless destruction of the enemy. In later wars the US showed the world what dipping a toe in the waters of war does. Korea, Vietnam, on and on we go. Our "police actions" and limited engagements yielded nothing but protracted, unecessary suffering.

Once you're in, you've got to be all-in. The one with the most resources, and will to win, is the one who prevails.

Let me repeat the original question -- WHY DID JAPANESE SURRENDER 22 DAYS LATER?
22 days of denial
My grandpa who fought in the war told me that Japanese soldiers were killing themselves at the end. Surrendering was considered a great dishonor.

Not only was surrender unthinkable as people said, but I just read that they had never been successfully invaded, nor lost a war. Ever.

Side note, I watched a documentary about the delivery of the first A-bomb, Fat Man I guess. The guy who sat in the rear of the plane and manually unhinged it for its drop told the story. I think it was just him and the pilot. I wish I could remember the name of the film, but it was nerve-racking to watch even knowing how it turned out.

The surrender of Japan was announced by the Emperor to his subjects on the 15 August 1945. So by then they had already decided to surrender. It took 6 days, not 22 days. The official ceremony was on 2 September 1945.

The declaration of war and imminent invasion by Russia might have played a bigger part than that of the A-bombs.

My understanding is that they actually informed the United States of their surrender somewhere around August 12 or 13. The announcement was made public on the 15th.
