Good catch. Was there any resistance to US occupation in Japan?

No, in large part because the people who were most likely to resist the occupation (Shinto imperialists) were prevented from doing so by the order of the Emperor, who is the descendant of the sun goddess and God-on-Earth in Shinto theology. If your god tells you to throw in the towel, that pretty much decided matters for the Japanese people.
