True Illustration of the Grand Maneuvers of the Army at Nagoya in Owari, Attended by the Emperor, 1890

Comments - In 1890, the Japanese Imperial Army conducted "Grand Maneuvers" at and around Nagoya, with mock battles on land and at sea. For the first time, the Meiji Emperor invited foreign diplomats to view the exercises, which were meant to show off Japan's modern, well-equipped and trained military forces, and tacitly demonstrate Japan as a force to be reckoned with. John Franklin Smith, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipoteniary, represented the United States during the four days of operations, which involved close to thirty thousand troops. In a letter to his superiors, Mr. Swift reported being highly impressed with the strength, conduct, and discipline of Japan's military.
