Foudnation of the Empire of Japan

The Empire of Japan started in the year 93 (660 BC) under the leadership fo Emperor Jimmu 神武 to a rather small area on the island of Honshu 本州 but with the reigns of his successors the Emprie grew to encompass the island of Honshu, Kyushu 九州, Shikoku 四国, and Hokkaido 北海道, and the military of the Empire grew with the new nationalism gained by their rule from the Emperor. The Emperors of Japan, that had been heavily influenced by the Han Dynasty Emperors in Sinica, moved to take the three main islands as well as the Ryukyu archipelago. The Japanese scorned the Han Dynasty for looking down on them, solidifying a strong national pride in the people of Japan, and this led many of them to engage in foreign affairs to udnermine the Sinicans and to carve out pieces of them which led to the Chrysanthemum Affair that won Japan the island of Taiwan 台灣 as well as the acts that led to the start of the Sino-Japanese War.
