Strangely yes. Japanese officials themselves basically said that the bombs allowed them to surrender without losing face. Granted, a lot of them were then hanged for war crimes, but the atomic bombs basically made surrender the only logical option. All the sake in Japan, and banzai charges don't do a thing against daily atomic bombings, all but the most fanatical imperialists accepted that after Nagasaki.
