Chapter Summary

Between 1873 and 1945 Mongolia was far more important to Japan than has been previously recognized. Furthermore, the connection began comparatively early, only five years or so at most after Japan's reemergence on the international stage, and continued throughout the entire period. There were a great many agents involved in the relationship from the Japanese side, and a variety of interests were intertwined. While the activities of the various agents involved in Japan's relationship with Mongolia differed, they also form a pattern in which there were some more or less constant elements. Moreover, Japan's relationship with Mongolia, whether driven by strategic considerations or by other factors, changed over time according to the shifting priorities of the Japanese government, the impact of events in China and other external factors. The ties between the two countries have continued.

Keywords: China; Japan's relationship; Japanese government; Mongolia
