I have no doubt that Japan would have supplied its army with semi-automatics had it been able to do so. Semi-auto rifles don't just fire faster, they significantly increase the hit ratio, so ammo usage balances out. Certainly the trend was there and Japan was well aware of it, even making a few copies of the U.S. M1 rifle in 7.7.
