thanks to the most of you with thoughtful replies.

rather ironic; a lot of IJN Admirals went into WWII looking for a big decisive battle with battleships and cruisers.
that door was opened but they didn't go in.

I think most of us agree that even if the IJN had massacred the landing force they still would have lost the war.
