Japanese Expansion in Korea and China Exploitation & Consumption Legacies and Patterns
of Globalization Overview Japanese Expansion in Korea and China Japan Japan got the name "Land of the Rising Sun" from its geographical location. Japan is an archipelago of thousands of islands and located in the far east of Asia where the sun first rises. The Japanese name for Japan is Nippon, which literally means "the sun's origin" Korea In the 20th century, Korea became the focus of rival interest among neighboring China, Japan and Russia as well as the more distant US. Social and Cultural Japan, China and Korea share some similarities with their cultures. This is because of their geographical location. Ancient China influenced the culture of its neighboring countries. Writings: Korean Calligraphy Chinese Calligraphy Japanese Calligraphy Palaces: Korea China Japan Economic and Environmental Japan (Nation of Exploitation) Japan started its economic development during the mid 19th century when the country opened up to Western commerce.
During the Meiji period (1912-1968), the government built railroads, improved roads, and introduce land reform programs to prepare the country for further development.
They also built factories and shipyards that provide good economic conditions for business. Time, Circumstances and Sorroundings Japan's territorial expansion in China and Korea between 1875 and 1930. During the early stages of Japan's expansion, the Japanese economy expanded considerably. Over the course of the Pacific War, the economies of Japan and its occupied territories all suffered severely. Time, Circumstances and Surroundings Japan's territorial expansion in east Asia between 1875 - 1930. During the early stages of Japan's expansion, the Japanese economy expanded considerably. Over the course of the Pacific War, the economies of Japan and its occupied territories all suffered severely. Korea (Nation of Consumption) Korea has rich natural resources. Korea once had large timber resources Korea has great mineral wealth the five major minerals-gold, iron, ore, coal, tungsten and graphite. Korea is agriculturally self sufficient with its wide farmlands and excellent fishing grounds. Japan wanted a sphere of influence in Asia,and wanted to show the European powers that had colonies there that a new "era" had dawned and that the Asian people were not going to accept Western rule.

The major reason was more economic based as Japan was in great need for raw materials (as Japan was poor in this area). Japan was especially lacking in petroleum and South East Asia also provided rubber, rice, and a market to sell finished goods too. Language and Social Assimilation Cause: Japan wanted more power over Korea by rooting out all the elements of Korean Culture from the society and replacing it with the Japanese Culture Effects: People were forced to adopt Japanese names. Koreans were forced to convert to the Shinto religion (native Japanese religion). Korean Japanese Shinto Shrine's in Korea Depopulation Cause: Japan needed more people to be their soldiers, laborers and slaves. Effects: 450,000 soldiers from China and Korea were killed during the war. 10,000 to 200,000 women from China and Korea who served in Japanese military suffered from sexual harassment. Imperial Japanese Army also used human test subjects in experiments such as biological weapons development programs Chezka Picatoste

Arienne Chan China China is the world’s largest exporter and second largest economy, and has one of the strongest growth rates. The End!!! Political The empire of Japan knew it had to act fast and in some numbers to complete the sphere of influence its leaders envisioned throughout the pacific and in Southeast Asia. This meant a rapid and mobile military force with calculating and resource-minded objectives. China is rich in natural resources and sparsely populated had obvious advantages for a densely populated and resource-poor Japan. Amongst China's resources coveted by Japan were iron, coking coal, soybeans, salt and above all land, all severely lacking within the Japanese empire in 1930. They needed raw materials as their territory was too small for their large population, They needed farmland for their population as the existing farms were being cut up too small and they needed jobs for farmer to have a better life. Japan as a have-not country felt the distribution of natural resources in the world was unfair and in Korea and China proper saw its opportunity to right the balance. The need for a larger economic base was closely linked with Japanese conceptions of coming wars, the effect of the great depression and a rise in anti-Japanese feeling in China. Resources Expansion in Manchuria Manchuria is a historical name given to a large geographic region in northeast Asia. Manchuria is rich in natural resources, which Japan desperately needed for it rapid industrial development. Japan saw this as a chance to begin gaining power to its neighboring regions.
