Actually they where in a major internal conflict with the emperor wanting to surrender while his generals where refusing. In fact the emperor had to flee for his life before the bombing because the generals had more power and had vowed never to surrender. Only after the bombs where dropped did the Emperor have enough support to force the generals to accept surrendering. Without the bombs Japan would have never surrendered.
