The Commonwealth Administration for the Territories of Shikoku and Kyushu, known more commonly as the Commonwealth Administration , Shikoku and Kyushu or Shikoku-Kyushu (Japanese: 四国と九州連邦の管理) was the military occupation government of the Australian occupation zone of Japan, which consisted of the islands of Shikoku and Kyushu, and the Ryukyu Islands in addition, including Okinawa. The Administration transitioned to civilian governance with the recall of General Thomas Blamey to Australia and the appointment of his replacement Jonathan Newman. The Commonwealth Government in Canberra granted Shikoku-Kyushu full Territory status. The Australian zone was officially admitted to the Australian Commonwealth on November 1st, 1950. Shikoku-Kyushu became a State (with the names of the islands reversed, Kyushu-Shikoku) in 1962.
