What was wrong with the Japanese government and military during WWII?

They refused to surrender which led to thousands of innocent Japanese civilians getting killed. They started a war that they knew they couldn't win and let innocent Japanese men, women, and children take the fall. I don't get it.

First, you make an unfounded assumption that Japan knew it couldn't win a Pacific War against the United States, England, France and the Dutch. The European colonial powers were engaged in a death struggle on the Continent against Germany and the Japanese knew they were ill-equipped to fight major wars on two fronts. You still had Commonwealth nations Australia, New Zealand and India, but these were not major nations and did not possess the full capabilities of a 1940s-military power. There was, of course, the war in China, but the Japanese were winning that war. There might have been an issue with the Soviet Union, but following a brief undeclared war on the Mongolian border where Soviet Gen. Georgy Zhukov -- the general who led Russian armies into Berlin -- inflicted a sharp defeat of Japanese forces in the area the Japanese and Soviets signed a five-year non-aggression treaty, which the Russians honored until the treaty's end.

So that left the United States as the only Pacific wild card. And the US had a powerful Pacific fleet with eight battleships as its backbone. In preparation for a counter strike against an expected Japanese attack on American colonies in the Pacific such as the Philippines and Guam, the fleet had been withdrawn to Pearl Harbor, which was thought to be safely outside the range of the Japanese Navy. Remember, this was before any one fully understood the tactical and strategic capabilities of aircraft carriers. And the U.S. fleet in 1940 was a battleship fleet, even though we had several carriers in service including three carriers in the Pacific. The Japanese believed a quick strike on the US Pacific fleet at Pearl would cripple the American Navy and quick victories in the Philippines and Guam would force the Americans to sue for peace. They may have understood they couldn't win a protracted war with the United States, but the Japaneses in May 1941 planned to fight a limited, quick war with the US.

And, it might have worked had they not sunk all eight battleships stationed at Pearl. The loss of the battleships forced a battleship-loving Navy to discover the capabilities of aircraft carriers. Carrier-led victories at the battles of the Coral Sea and Midway destroyed the Japanese Navy as a viable fighting force and reduced the role of United States battleships to a tactical role -- pounding the beaches before amphibious landings -- and forever ended the battleship's strategic role: projecting naval power into a region. If the Japanese had not sunk all eight battleships, we might have went into the Pacific theater still in a battleship-heavy mindset and that might have given the Japanese the advantage they needed to force us into a peace.

Secondly, you miss the religious nature of the Japanese war effort. The Japanese soldier was taught to die with honor, not to disrespect his ancestors, his family, his emperor, who was considered to be a living god, and his country by showing cowardice and surrendering on the battlefield. Because, in the Japanese nationalistic religion practiced in the 1920s, 30s and 40s, it was much better to die fighting than to surrender, captured soldiers were treated very badly. By surrendering, instead of fighting to an honorable death, captured soldiers gave up any rights they had to respect and were treated as dogs. This is why so many losing Japanese battles ended with banzai charges against machine gun nests or mass suicides among their troops. It was far better to die in battle than to surrender. "Honor" was the highest virtue in Japanese life and on the battlefield.

Following the loss of Okinawa, the Japanese started to prepare against an expected American invasion of the mainland. School children and the elderly were given pikes and told to take one the life of one American soldier as they died honorably without surrender. Even after the United States showed its technological power by dropping two atomic bombs, it took the direct intervention of the emperor to convince the war cabinet to surrender.
