- In the first part of the 1910s, the Japanese army considered colonial Korea as an important foothold to invade the Chinese Continent. TERAUCHI Masatake. the Governor-General of Korea and his followers attempted to push forward with an expansive continental policy, particularly during the Xinhai Revolution in China and the First World War, when the army was known to activate its maneuvers to invade China. (Commonly found in their behavior during both the periods are these points. First, the army planned to mobilize its units stationed in Korea perceiving that the strategic significance of Korea was mainly in its location behind Manchuria, where Japan had a lot of rights and interests. Secondly, an active continental policy was also required to stabilize the Japanese rule of the colonial Korea. Thirdly, those who were much concerned with the military plans of 1911 and the years of World War I. such as AKASHI Motojirou, thought that a military approach rather than a diplomatic one was needed to China, considering the experience Japan had had in the course of the Annexation of Korea. It is likely that these frameworks of reference formed in 1910s regulated the behavior of the Japanese forces stationed in Korea after 1920s.
