IJA flag

The IJA's flag

The Imperial Japanese Army was a component of the Empire of Japan's military which consisted of ground and air forces which conducted land-based operations. It participated in a number of wars, such as the First and Second Sino-Japanese wars, the Boxer Rebellion, the Russo-Japanese war, World War I and World War II.

In its early days, the IJA took inspiration from Western armies, and invested in the purchase of foreign technology and equipment. The IJA mostly saw a rise during the reign of Emperor Shōwa (known during his reign, 1926–1945, as Hirohito), whose policies were often centered around Japan's military power.

During the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Second World War, the IJA participated in the invasion of China and of Pacific and South-East Asian territories, subsequently building bases and being mostly on the defensive in the latter half of the war.

After the surrender of Japan in September 1945, the Imperial Army was dissolved during the American occupation. Since 1952, Japan maintains the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, the "successor" of the IJA.
