Really? Just survive until Japan can only take very few land actions while fighting the rest of the war and you'll get your revenge.
You should go on to the end. You should fight for Kweiyang, you should fight in Cheng Tu and Chungking, you should fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, you should defend your hinterland, whatever the cost may be. You should fight on the mountains, you should fight in the valleys, you should fight in the fields and in the streets, you should fight in the hills; you should never surrender. And if, which I do not for a moment believe, your hinterland or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, shall step forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.
Actually if the writings on the wall that Japan is on the knife edge of DoWing the CW and the US AND - a key point - Japan is not at war with any other major power, then a surrender can be considered because:
a) it may give the US enough entry to pass War Appropriations and then if they move first do a pre-emptive DoW of their own, and
b) all the Japanese Reserve units will disappear from the map and come back face down only when Japan is at war again, and
c) in the meantime, Japan can only take Combined actions and their naval units are all one naval move apiece.
