Spheres of influence, such as the powers had acquired elsewhere, were not always thought by Japanese governments to be enough. Yet it was impossible for them to ignore the fact that establishing political power, going beyond the limits of the treaty port system, was likely to provoke opposition from Britain and America, who were in a position to deny, or at least hamper, Japanese access to international credit and the Chinese market. An attempt was therefore made to resolve this dilemma by making a distinction between two arms of Japanese imperialism. This chapter describes the annexation of Korea and the Japanese sphere of influence in Manchuria. It deals with the processes of its formulation and the tensions to which it gave rise among decision makers.
