Why did more Japanese die on Kokoda trail than Australians?

It is interesting isn't it. Especially since the Japanese were well armed, superior fighters with excellent training etc. While the diggers were no more than untrained farmboys. So why did the Australians inflict a larger casualty rate? The Kokoda Trail was Australias last line of defense, the British had abandoned us, the Americans were providing very little to no help, and other allies such as NZ were preoccupied in Europe/North Africa. If Kokoda fell then Australia would be wide open for a full fledged invasion. There were already bombers destroying northern towns such as Darwin, Cairns, Broome etc. It was this situation that led to every digger to believe that they were no longer fighting for another country but they were fighting to save Australia.
