Empire of Japan
The Empire of Japan is a term used for Japan between the Meji Restoration in 1868 (ending feudal Japan) and the 1947 constitution (after WWII). However, Japan has had emperors both before and after this time period.
As being one of the defeated during WWII, causing effects such as being described negatively by Allied psychological warfare, various claims regarding events during this time period may be problematic.
- Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
- Attack on Pearl Harbor
- Occupation of Japan
- The World Wars and mass starvation
