Manchuria , along with other borderlands of the Chinese Empire such as Mongolia
and Tibet, came under the influence of colonial powers such as Britain which nibbled at
Tibet, France at Hainan and Germany at Shandong. Meanwhile the Russia encroached upon
Turkestan and Outer Mongolia, having annexed Outer Manchuria. Inner Manchuria also came
under strong Russian influence with the building of the Chinese Eastern Railway through
Harbin to Vladivostok. Due to the Russo-Japanese War in 1904–1905, in which Japan
surprised the world powers by decisively defeating Russia on the ground as well as out at
sea,virtually annihilating the Russian Far East Fleet and the The Russian Second Pacific
Squadron (The Russian Baltic Fleet Renamed) , Japan replaced Russian influence in the
southern half of Inner Manchuria.

MANCHUIA.jpg (3870 bytes) Great
Empire of Manchuria

With the erosion of Qing China influences in the 19th century, Korea began to show
greater independence, partly to avoid western domination, but also to avoid Japanese
control, while Japan was rapidly modernizing in the second half of the 19th century and
showing a keen interest in Korea. By the 1880s there were pro-Japanese and pro-Qing
factions influencing decisions by the Korean court. With the defeat of Qing forces inside
Korea in 1895 and the murder of Empress Myeongseong by Japanese agents, and the subsequent
defeat of Imperial Russia by Japan in 1905, Korea came firmly under the control of Japan
and would be occupied by Japan for 35 years.

Japanese General Kuroki and his staff, including foreign officers and
war correspondents 1904

AFTER THE Russo-Japanese War the European powers and the United States
recognized Japan as a colonial power and a valuable ally during World War I., In Japan,
this led to the rise of ultra-right wing and nationalist leaders, such as Fumimaro Konoe
and Sadao Araki, who advocated uniting Asia under the rule of the emperor. Known as hakkô
ichiu, this philosophy gained ground during the 1920s and 1930s as Japan needed
increasingly more natural resources to support its industrial growth.

Japan entered World War I in 1914, seizing the opportunity of Germany’s distraction
with the European War to expand its sphere of influence in China and the Pacific. Japan
declared war on Germany on August 23, 1914. Japanese and allied British Empire forces soon
moved to occupy Tsingtao fortress, the German East Asia Squadron base, German-leased
territories in China’s Shandong Province as well as the Marianas, Caroline, and Marshall
Islands in the Pacific, which were part of German New Guinea. The Siege of Tsingtao and a
swift invasion in the German territory of Jiaozhou (Kiautschou), proved successful and the
colonial troops surrendered on November 7, 1914. Japan then gained the German holdings.

Terauchi Masatake Prime Minister of Japan 1916-1918

In July 1918, President Wilson asked the Japanese government to supply 7000 troops as
part of an international coalition of 25,000 troops planned to support the American
Expeditionary Force Siberia. (the western powers acting against the Russian Revolution)
Prime Minister Terauchi Masatake agreed to send 12,000 troops, but under the Japanese
command rather than as part of an international coalition To keep the economy growing, an
emphasis was placed on arms and weapons production with much of the raw materials coming
from the United States. Rather than continue this dependence on foreign materials, the
Japanese decided to seek out resource-rich colonies to supplement their existing
possessions in Korea and Formosa.

wpe7D.jpg (12642 bytes)

Manchuria was (and still is) an important region for its rich mineral and coal
reserves, and its soil is perfect for soy and barley production. For pre-World War II
Japan, Manchuria was an essential source of raw materials. Without occupying Manchuria,
the Japanese probably could not have carried out their plan for conquest over Southeast
Asia or taken the risk to attack Pearl Harbor on the 7th of December, 1941 Around the time
of World War I, Zhang Zuolin established himself as a powerful warlord with influence over
most of Manchuria. He was inclined to keep his Manchu army under his control and to keep
Manchuria free of foreign influence. The Japanese tried to kill him in 1916 by throwing a
bomb under his carriage, but failed. The Japanese finally succeeded on June 2, 1928, when
a planted bomb exploded under his seven-carriage train a few miles from Mukden station.

On September 18, 1931, the Japanese staged an incident along the Japanese-owned South
Manchuria Railway near Mukden (Shenyang). After blowing up a section of track, the
Japanese blamed the “attack” on the local Chinese garrison. Using the
“Mukden Bridge Incident” as a pretext, Japanese troops flooded into Manchuria.
On October 24, the League of Nations passed a resolution demanding the withdrawal of
Japanese troops by November 16. This resolution was rejected by Tokyo and Japanese troops
continued operations to secure Manchuria. the Japanese created the puppet state of
Manchukuo with the last Chinese emperor, Puyi, as its leader. Like the United States, the
League of Nations refused to recognize the new state, prompting Japan to leave the
organization in 1933. On November 25, 1936, Japan joined with Nazi Germany and Fascist
Italy in signing the Anti-Comintern Pact which was directed against global communism. the
military, Konoe permitted troop strength in China to grow and by the end of the year
Japanese forces had occupied Shanghai, Nanking, and southern Shanxi province. After
seizing the capital of Nanking, the Japanese brutally sacked the city in late 1937 and
early 1938. The last Manchu emperor, Puyi, was then placed on the throne to lead a
Japanese puppet government in the Wei Huang Gong, better known as “Puppet Emperor’s
Palace”. Inner Manchuria was thus detached from China by Japan to create a buffer
zone to defend Japan from Russia’s Southing Strategy and, with Japanese investment and
rich natural resources, became an industrial domination.

wpe7C.jpg (12556 bytes)

As his brother Emperor Puyi was without a direct heir,, HIS YOUNGER BROTHER, Prince
Pujie, was regarded first in line to succeed the Manchukuo throne, and the Japanese
officially proclaimed him as heir apparent. He l went to Japan for studies. After
graduation from the Imperial Japanese Army Academy, Pujie agreed to an arranged marriage
with a Japanese noblewoman. Pujie selected Lady Hiro Saga (1914-1987), who was a relative
of the Japanese Imperial Family from a photograph from a number of possible candidates
vetted by the Kwantung Army. the wedding had strong political implications, and was aimed
at both fortifying relations between the two nations and introducing Japanese blood into
the Manchurian Imperial family.

A Japanese propaganda poster for the Tripartite Pact: “Good friends
in three countries”. (left AdOolf HiItler, center Fumimaro Konoe, right Benito
Mussolini)

On September 22, 1940, taking advantage of France’s defeat that summer, Japanese troops
occupied French Indochina. Five days later, the Japanese signed the Tripartiate Pact
effectively forming an alliance with Germany and Italy At the time of the collapse of
Manchukuo during the Soviet invasion of Manchuria of August 1945, Pujie initially
attempted to escape to exile in Japan with his brother. However, as it became apparent
that no escape was possible, he opted to return to Hsinking in an unsuccessful attempt to
surrender the city to Kuomingtang forces of the Republic of China, rather than have the
city fall into Russian hands. Pujie was arrested by the Soviet Red Army, and was sent to
prison camps in Chita and Khabarovsk in Siberia with his brother and other relatives. With
the Sino-Soviet rapprochement after the establishment of the People’s Republic of China,
Pujie was extradited to China in 1950.Under the People’s Republic of China On his return
to China, Pujie was incarcerated in the Fushun War Criminals Management Centre. A model
prisoner, he became a symbol of leniency by the communist regime, joined the Communist
Party of China, and later served in a number of important posts.In 1978, Pujie became a
deputy from Shanghai at the 5th National People’s Congress. He subsequently served as
deputy from Liaoning, Politburo Standing Committee Member, and Vice Chairman of the
Nationalities Committee of the 6th National People’s Congress in 1983. He was appointed
Deputy Head of the China-Japan Friendship Group from 1985. He rose to a seat on the
Presidium of the 7th National People’s Congress in 1988. From 1986, Pujie was also
Honorary Director for the Handicapped Welfare Fund.

_______________________________________________________

AFTER THE HUMILIATING 1905 DEFEAT OF THE RUSSIANS BY THE JAPANESE, JAPAN WAS MORE OR
LESS AWARDED KOREA AND MANCHURIA BY THE WORLD POWERS. IN FACT, RUSSIAN COLONIAL EXPANSION
INTO KOREA AND MANCHURIA WERE A DIRECT CAUSE OF THE SINO-RUSSIA WAR AS OUTLINED ABOVE.
AFTER THE JAPANESE VICTORY, THE WORLD, INCLUDING THE U.S., WERE AMAZED AND ASTOUNDED AND
THE U.S. WOULD FORM AN ALLIANCE OF SORTS WITH JAPAN AND WOULD BE ONE OF JAPAN’S LARGEST
TRADING PARTNERS. BY 1933, JAPAN BEGAN TO SEE HERSELF ON EQUAL GROUND TO THE WORLD POWERS.
NATIONALISM AND MILITARISM WERE AT THE FRONT OF HER AGENDA. JAPAN BEGAN FLEXING HER NAVAL
POWER AND EXPANDING IN A WAY THAT THREATENED THE U.S. AND HER EUROPEAN ALLIES.

IN 1936 JAPAN THEN PULLED OUT OF THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS AND
RENOUNCED THE WASHINGTON AND LONDON NAVEL TREATIES IN ORDER TO SECRETLY DEVELOP A NEW
CLASS OF BATTLE SHIP CALLED THE YAMATO CLASS; A CLASS OF BATTLESHIP THAT WAS THE LARGEST
AND MOST FORTIFIED AND GUNNED IN HISTORY.

ON 15 JANUARY 1936, JAPAN WITHDREW FROM THE LONDON NAVEL
CONFERENCE WHERE TALKS WERE TO PROCEED ON ARM REDUCTION–PRIMARILY ON BATTLESHIPS.

IN 1936, A WORLD WIDE ARMS RACE HAD BEGUN WITH BATTLE SHIPS BEING THE PRIMARY WEAPON OF
CHOICE. FRANCE, GERMANY, ITALY, ENGLAND AND THE US IMMEDIATELY BEGAN PLANS FOR LARGER MORE
POWERFUL BATTLESHIPS.. BY 1937, JAPAN WAS CONDUCTING AN UNDECLARED WAR IN CHINA. THE SEA
WOULD BECOME THE BATTLE GROUND FOR JAPAN AND ITS ISLANDS JAPAN’S BASES. THUS THE BATTLE
SHIP WAS THE MOST PROMINENT WEAPON OF JAPAN.

IT WAS THE WAR WITH CHINA AND JAPAN’S EMPIRE BUILDING IN
KOREA, MANCHURIA AND OTHER PLACES THAT BUILT THE IMPERIAL ARMY. MOST OF THE FIRST FRONT
LINE TROOPS, AND OFFICERS IN THE AIR, ONE THE GROUND AND ABOARD SHIPS DURING WWII WERE
THOSE THAT SERVED IN KOREA AND CHINA.

SEIKO MILITARY WATCH ONE OF FIRST BRANDED SEIKO.

FROM 1874 TO 1917, JAPAN HAD SHED HER ANCIENT OUT-DATED WAYS
AND MOVED WITH UNEXPECTED FORCE INTO THE MODERN WORLD. JAPAN HAD BECOME A BUILDER OF HER
OWN ARMAMENTS, SHIPS, PLANES AND HAD EVEN IMPROVED UPON THE ADVANCEMENTS OF THE MODERNIZED
WORLD. IN FACT, AFTER THE 1904-05 ANNIHILATION OF TWO VAUNTED AND POWERFUL RUSSIAN FLEETS,
SHE HAD BECOME A WELCOME TREATY PARTNER OF THE USA, BRITAIN AND THE WORLD AT LARGE. BY
1917, DAINI SEIKOSHA WAS SEEKING WESTERN TECHNOLOGY TO IMPROVE THEIR CAPABILITIES TO
PRODUCE MODERN WATCHES. THEY INVITED SWISS AND AMERICAN WATCH COMPANIES TO JAPAN. THEY DID
WHAT THE JAPANESE DO BEST. UNDER THE BANNER OF POSSIBLE EXPORTS, THESE COMPANIES WOULD, IN
FACT, TEACH THE JAPANESE WOW TO MAKE WATCHES THAT, BY THE 1950’S, WOULD COMPETE TOE TO
TOE, WITH THE ENTIRE GLOBAL WATCH COMMUNITY.

IN 1917, JAPAN HAD AGREEMENTS WITH THE MOST ADVANCED
COMPANIES IN SWITZERLAND AND THE UNITED STATES. THE ABOVE ADD IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO
THIS OFFER AND ITS HISTORY. MANY SEIKOSHA MILITARY WATCHES CONTAINED WALTHAM MOVEMENTS! IN
ADDITION, SWISS TECHNOLOGY AND FINISHING TECHNIQUES CAN BE FOUND IN THE LIMITED ANTIQUE
VINTAGE JAPANESE TIME PIECES AVAILABLE TODAY, SUCH AS THIS SEIKOSHA SEIKO TIME PIECE WITH
SEIKOSHA MOVEMENT THAT HAS ALL THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A SWISS OR AMERICAN TIME PIECE OF
THE DAY.

********************************

THE SEIKOSHA WATCH > SEIKO > NATION + DELIKATA + OTHERS…. I SPEND MOST OF MY
“SPARE” TIME SEEKING CANDIDATES FOR RESTORATION,. I DO NOT COLLECT THEM, I SELL
THEM– SO I CAN DO IT OVER AND OVER. SO, I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY LUCK WHEN I DISCOVERED
THIS ORIGINAL SEIKOSHA SEIKO/NATION

AFTER THE RUSSO-JAPANESE WAR [1905], WITH JAPAN’S STUNNING
VICTORY, JAPAN WAS ON THE MOVE. HER EMPIRE ON THE BUILD -MOTIVATED BY A GROWING RIGHT WING
IMPERIAL MILITARY WING – JAPAN, WITH FULL SUPPORT OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, RECEIVED
THE RIGHT TO “COLONIZE” KOREA.

IN REALITY, THE US-BRITISH AND FRENCH GOVERNMENTS SIMPLY
HANDED OVER KOREA [1910] –WHICH HAD BEEN A RUSSIAN SEMI-COLONY–AS A “REWARD”
OR THE LATE “SPOILS RRESULTING FROM THE WAR.

IT WAS DURING THIS TIME THAT JAPAN SOUGHT WESTERN TECHNOLOGY
IN A BID TO FURTHER WHAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY FROM A BACKWARDS TECHNOLOGY NATION OF
1875, TO A NATION THAT DESTROYED TWO RUSSIAN FLEETS IN 1905.

THE ONE AND ONLY POWERFUL SEIKOSHA COMPANY TRAVELED THE GLOBE
ABSORBING ALL THE INOVATIONS IN TIME KEEPING AND SOON BECAME THE MAIN WATCH AND CLOCK
DRIVING AND PRODUCING FORCE IN JAPAN.

THE FOLLOWING PICTURES REPRESENT SEIKOSHA’ CUMILATION OF
KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE; A LINE OF STANDARD & MILITARY WATCHES (THERE WERE MILITARY
ACTIONS IN KOREA, CHINA, MANCHURIA AND OTHER PLACES 24/7) WITH UNIQUE NAMES SUCH AS
“NATION” [ SIGNIFYING THE JAPANESE NATION] SEIKO [WAS NOT A BRAND YET], DELIKATA
AND OTHERS. THESE WATCHES WOULD BE WORN AND CHERISHED JAPANESE SOLDIERS.

1904-05 War With Russia

A unique jugun kiso was ordered on March 31, 1906 by Imperial Edict No. 51
in recognition of those who served in the Russo-Japanese war which occurred during the
37th and 38th years of the Meiji period — Meiji 37-38 (1904–1905). The
Russo-Japanese War (8 February 1904 – 5 September 1905) was “the first great war
of the 20th century” which grew out of the rival imperial ambitions of the Russian
Empire and Japanese Empire over Manchuria and Korea. The major theatres of operations were
Southern Manchuria, specifically the area around the Liaodong Peninsula and Mukden, the
seas around Korea, Japan, and the Yellow Sea. The Russians sought a warm water port on the
Pacific Ocean, for their navy as well as for maritime trade. Vladivostok was only
operational during the summer season, but Port Arthur would be operational all year. From
the end of the First Sino-Japanese War and 1903, negotiations between Russia and Japan had
proved impractical. Japan chose war to maintain dominance in Korea. The resulting
campaigns, in which the Japanese military attained victory over the Russian forces arrayed
against them, were unexpected by world observers. As time transpired, these victories
would transform the balance of power in East Asia, resulting in a reassessment of Japan’s
recent entry onto the world stage.

China Incdent War/Service Medal.

The incident that occurred at the Marco Polo bridge near Peiping on the 7th of July,
1937 triggered a series of actions that would culminate with the invasion of China by
Japan. The war medal was awarded to soldiers departing for service in China. The front of
the medal depicts the “Yata-no-karasu” (mythical bird) on crossed Army and Navy
flags. Complete with rays of light behind and the Chrysanthemum crest above. The back of
the medal portrays mountains, clouds and waves. The meaning behind this symbology is
Northern China, Central China and the red Sea. The inscription reads “China
Incident”. The “Yata-no-karasu” is a giant three legged mythical red crow
which, according to legend, guided Jimmu Tenno’s army through the mountains. In designing
the medal, the decision was made to depict the bird with only two legs. The China Incident
Medal (Sina jihen jugun kisho) medal was created by Imperial Edit No. 496 on July 27, 1939
and was awarded for service in China from during the 12th through the 20th years of the
Showa period — Showa 12-20 (1937–1945). An amendment was promulgated by Imperial
Edict No. 418 in 1944; and the decoration was abolished in 1946 by government ordinance
No. 177. Although the Japanese government still uses “China Incident” in formal
documents, media in Japan often paraphrase with other expressions like Japan-China
Incident (???? Nikka jihen) or (???? Nisshi jihen). These terms were used by media even in
the 1930s, and the word Shina is now construed by China as a derogatory term.

JAPANESE 6TH CLASS ORDER OF SACRED TREASURE

The Order of the Sacred Treasure is a Japanese Order, established on January 4, 1888 by
Emperor Meiji of Japan as the Order of Meiji. It is awarded in eight classes (from 8th to
1st, in ascending order of importance). It is generally awarded for long and/or
meritorious service and considered to be the lowest of the Japanese orders of merit
(hosho). A European counterpart of the order would be the Order of the British Empire. It
is awarded for both civil and military merit, though of a lesser degree than that required
for the conferment of the Order of the Rising Sun. Unlike its European counterparts, the
order may be conferred posthumously.

IMG_7248.JPG (196407 bytes)

JAPANESE 8TH CLASS RISING SUN MEDAL

The Order of the Rising Sun was awarded to military and civilian personnel for general
merit. This award was given extensively to Japanese and foreign individuals. The award
comes in eight different classes, or six classes and two decorations. CREATED April 10,
1875.

IMPERIAL JAPANESE MAP HOUSED IN A
SEPARATE BOX

OFFICIAL JAPANESE IMPERIAL FLEET MAP
“SURVEYS OF THE IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY TO 1931”

Sasebo is located in the northwestern
part of Kyushu,. Sasebo has been an important naval base ever since 1883, when then
Lieutenant Commander Heihachiro Togo nominated the tiny fishing village here to form the
nucleus for a base for the Imperial Japanese Navy. In 1904, ships of the Japanese Navy
under Admiral Togo sailed from Sasebo to take on the Russian Baltic Fleet. The Imperial
Japanese Navy had some 60,000 people working in the dock yard and associated naval station
here at the peak of World War II. When war broke out in Korea three years later, Sasebo
became the main launching point for United Nations and US Forces. Sasebo provided heavy
support to the expanded Seventh Fleet during the years of war in Southeast Asia. In the
mid Seventies, US Fleet Activities, Sasebo played a vital logistics role in Operation
Desert Sheild/storm during 1990-91, Approximately 1.5 hours from Sasebo is Hirado Island.
This area was made famous to the American populace in the NBC mini-series
“SHOGUN”, because it was where the character Blackthorne, (who was actually
William Adams), became shipwrecked.

Sasebo is located in the northwestern part of Kyushu, the
southernmost of the four islands that comprise the main portion of Japan. Kyushu is
bordered on the southeast by the Philippine Sea, on the west by the East China Sea, and on
its northwest side by the Korea (Tsushima) Strait, which connects the East China Sea with
the Sea of Japan. Kyushu is separated from the Japanese islands of Shikoku and the much
larger Honshu by the Inland Sea. Currents within the inner and outer harbors vary widely
with the tidal flow. Those within 2 nmi of the inner harbor generally are less than 0.3 kt
regardless of the stage of the tide. At low tide velocities approach 2 kt in the area 4 to
4.5 nmi south of the inner harbor (east of the main anchorage area near Ebisu Bay), and
over 1 kt near the western entrance to the outer harbor. However, currents are generally
not so strong as to hinder navigation. There is no record of a tsunami affecting the
harbor. Sasebo is located on the Northwest coast of Kyushu, the third largest – and with
the exception of the Ryukyu Island chain – the southernmost of the Japanese islands. The
southern tip of the Korean peninsula lies about 120 nautical miles to the northwest, Hong
Kong about 1000 miles to the southwest, and Tokyo, about 900 miles to the northeast.
Sasebo has been a Naval Port since the beginning of this century, first with the Japanese
Imperial Navy and, since 1946, the American Navy. Today its harbor and shore facilities
are shared by the U. S. Seventh Fleet and the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force. Sasebo
has been an important naval base ever since 1883, when then Lieutenant Commander
Heihachiro Togo nominated the tiny fishing village here to form the nucleus for a base for
the Imperial Japanese Navy. In 1904, ships of the Japanese Navy under Admiral Togo sailed
from Sasebo to take on the Russian Baltic Fleet . The Imperial Japanese Navy had some
60,000 people working in the dock yard and associated naval station here at the peak of
World War II. In September of 1945, the US Marine Corps Fifth Division landed at Sasebo,
and in June 1946, US Fleet Activities, Sasebo was established. When war broke out in Korea
three years later, Sasebo became the main launching point for United Nations and US
Forces. Millions of tons of ammunition, fuel, tanks, trucks and supplies flowed through
Sasebo on their way to UN Forces in Korea. The number of Americans in Sasebo grew to about
20,000; and some 100 warships and freighters per day swelled the foreign population here
still more. Sasebo provided heavy support to the expanded Seventh Fleet during the years
of war in Southeast Asia. In the mid Seventies, US Fleet Activities, Sasebo became Naval
Ordnance Facility, Sasebo, and fleet visits dwindled to a very low level. But on July 4th,
1980 this trend was reversed. US Fleet Activities regained its name, and once again
Seventh Fleet ships started to make Sasebo their overseas homeport. Sasebo played a vital
logistics role in Operation Desert Sheild/storm during 1990-91, by serving as a supply
point for ordance and fuel for ships and Marines operating in the Persian GuIf Theater.
Approximately 1.5 hours from Sasebo is Hirado Island. This area was made famous to the
American populace in the NBC mini-series “SHOGUN”, because it was where the
character Blackthorne, (who was actually William Adams), became shipwrecked. You can visit
the feudal lord’s castle and visit William Adams’ grave, a truly memorable trip to the
past. The Ureshino Hot Spring Resort is about 20 miles east of Sasebo. Ureshino is famous
for its abundance of natural hot springs, beautiful mountains, and the peaceful atmosphere
of a soft stream running through the town. It is a popular resort for those who like to
relax and enjoy taking natural hot- spring baths. Sasebo and the surrounding areas are a
photographer’s delight.

DUE TO THE ORIGINAL OIL FINISH OF THE ORIGINAL
PAPER GLUES OR TAPES WOULD NOT WORK AND MAY HARM THE MAP SO WE UTILIZED A SPECIALLY
FORMULATED NON-BINDING “TAPE” ON 4 PARTS OF THE MAP

IT HELD JUST ENOUGH TO ALLOW US TO SET THE MAP
ALLOWING THE COVERING TO KEEP IT IN POSITION
