Téma: Could the Allies have used contained Japan, instead of dropping Fat Ma

If the Allies stationed troops in Korea, USSR, and China, and the US Navy, Royal Navy, Royal Australian Navy, etc. blockaded Japan, would this have been preferable?

If Japan really was willing to fight to the last man, then the bombs should not dissuade that. Surely dying in a nuclear blast for them was a more glorious death than getting shot by a rifle, tank, or artillery piece. Either way, it's still dying. This showed they were reasonable, and could realise when the game was up.

So if Japan was on the verge of a mass starvation event, wouldn't they have surrendered still, if they could acknowledge defeat was inevitable?

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
