The Guano Colonies Act was set forth by the Japanese government in early 1872 and ratified later in the same year. It states that if any island has deposits of Guano the Japanese government has the justification to claim those islands for the extraction of guano. These islands will be held directly under control of the current shogun and these islands will be classified as "Shogun Colonies" until reclassified.
