How did Japan become an imperial power?
In the 20th century Japan began the process of acquiring external territories. They acquired ports in China after the war with Russia in 1905. They also acquired Korea and Manchuria before what the west regards as the beginning of WW II, but they had been fighting China and acquiring territory for the whole of the 1930s.
Of course, after Pearl Harbour they acquired an expansive empire but did not hold it long.
