Japan: The Rise of an Empire, Part 2

With the Treaty of Portsmouth, Japan completed their ascent to World Power status, transforming itself from an archaic backwater to an imperial, military, and industrial power.

The Portsmouth Conference convened on August 9, 1905. In his work, The Japanese Oligarchy and the Russo-Japanese War, Shumpei Okamoto reported that Russian representative, Sergei Yulyevich Witte came with the inclination that "there are no victors here and therefore no vanquished." The tsar's instructions to him stated, "Russia will not pay even a kopeck. It will not cede one inch of its territory." The deal breakers for Japan included: authority over Korea, Russian troop abandonment of Manchuria, and cessation of the Kwatung Peninsula. Russia proclaimed an unwillingness to relinquish any portion of Sakhalin or an indemnity. In his book, Eugene P. Trani cited United States diplomat George Von Meyer's statement of the impasse:

The feeling that peace will not result from the meeting of the Plenipotentiaries at Portsmouth continues. Russia it is thought will not pay an indemnity nor yield Russian territory to Japan. Japan it is thought will demand not only territory but indemnity.

In his book, Imperialist Japan, Michael Montgomery posits that although this created a momentary deadlock, American reluctance to issue additional bonds to Japan and the substantial numerical advantage Russia enjoyed in Manchuria forced Japan to table some demands and accept a deal offering the southern half of Sakhalin. Both parties agreed to withdraw troops from Manchuria, abstain from interfering in Chinese industrial or commercial development, and refrain from using railways for strategic purposes; and Russia agreed to recognize Japan's influence over Korea and ceded the Kwantung Peninsula to Japan.

The war with Russia vaulted Japan into prominence. Japan's victory represented the first defeat of a Western power by an Eastern nation as it emerged as a continental Asian power. Trani argues that this greatly affected the global balance of power, ending Western political hegemony and shifting the base of power in Asia. The fact that the United States hosted the conference and that the President moderated, illustrated Japan's new global standing. Roosevelt realized this and saw the convention as an opportunity to garner an advantageous relationship with the burgeoning power.

U.S. interest in the war and its conclusion signals the international nature of the conflict. China, Korea, Britain, France, Russia, and other nations held stakes in the war's outcome, adding to the importance of Japan's victory. Scholars often refer to the Russo-Japanese War as the first world war. Japan enjoyed considerable benefit from the global capacity of the war.

Japan's new prestige instigated a trip to Peking in search of rights to Manchuria and broadened its expansionist ideals to include mainland territory. Because of their friendly relationship, much of what Russia lost came out of China's pocket. China and Korea again became targets for Japan. The Japanese soon became the dominant player in Asian affairs. Barring Russia, no nation had checked its expansion which continued until 1945.

The response in Japan to the treaty bordered on apoplectic. Having embraced the nations cause and sacrificed their sons, the people could not help be feel betrayed. They had consumed reports of victory after victory and knew nothing of the hardships encountered in battle. This sheltering led had disastrous effects. In Hibiya Park, men and women gathered to show their discontent. The thirty-thousand plus demonstrators called for the continuance of hostilities against the Western foe and reproached the government for caving for far too little. Riots broke out and causalities mounted for demonstrators and police alike. Many buildings burned in one of the most violent uprisings in Japanese history. Both the laity and the government, however, shared in the ambition of a powerful Japanese nation. These ambitions eventually led to Japan's intrusion into China.

Before their downfall in 1945, Japan boasted one of the largest empires in the world. Although some viewed their expansion with ire, the transformation of Japan into a major world power was nothing short of remarkable. In the context of the early 20th Century, dominated by Western ideals, technology, and diplomacy, Japan quickly broke down these barriers, cemented by the defeat of a perennial Western Power. Fueled by imperialist ambition and a desire for parity with the West, Japan transformed itself from an archaic backwater to an imperial, military, and industrial power. Roosevelt's words capture the essence of Japan's uniqueness. The small island nation would duplicate this transformation again in the years after World War II, suggesting a quality not inherent in other polities.
