After Japan emerged from its isolationist or Sakoku period, it began its Industrial Revolution. This period was known as Meiji, and it changed Japan's political, cultural and economic structure to welcome the modern world. It colonized Manchuria, Korea and Taiwan during this period, and it's growth skyrocketed until it was able to compete with other world powers both militarily as well as economically.
