comment Why did the Japanese expect the United States navy would attack the Home Islands?
The OP's question was: "The Japanese must have had some reason to believe that an attack was the only viable option for the Americans. What was that reason?" And the answer was, because they didn't envision an alternative. Or put another way, "because everyone else was doing it that way." Until the Americans didn't.

This question should probably be deleted, since it was asked and answered on the History of Science and Mathematics.
