Some reasons for minor fighting after the formal surrender:
-overenthousisastic soldiers
-an attempt to keep the soviets as far east as possible
-orders arriving late

Some Japanese kept 'fighting' on isolated islands for many years.

Rumours about what Sovjet troops did to surrendering German forces and civillians and no communications. Surely they heared the "Germany surrendered, stop fighting."-things for month before.

Some Japanese Soldiers on distant Islands didn't surrender for weeks.
