    Looking at these photos, I wanted to confirm that IJN had the largest WWII subs.

    They did.

    japans WW2 theory was big ships as they dont take place, great aircrafts, even to avoid excess area being taken by aircraft they built the first AC's and light weapons esp. nambu pistol type 100 (a sum what reverse enginered sten) and ariska bolt action (mostly made of wood as metal saving was the policy of japan)

    Looking at the photos, I wonder how the Allies defeated Japan. I guess the answer would be air power.

    The Allies defeated Japan because America had far more resources and a far greater industrial capacity than Japan. The Japanese actually had qualitatively superior naval and air forces compared to America, at least during the opening stages of the war. But this quickly became irrelevant when literally hundreds of ships and thousands of airplanes were rolling out of American shipyards and factories, while the Japanese were unable to recover from their losses at decisive battles like Midway.
