China seceded Taiwan to Japan after the loss of the First Sino-Japanese War in 1895. Japan had intentions to turn Taiwan into a "showpiece colony" to garner support for their military aggression in the Pacific. This included cultural integration, public works, industry, building the economy, and agriculture. After the surrender of Japan in August of 1945, Taiwan was once again under the rule of China, although Japan did not formally announce the sovereignty of Taiwan until April of 1952.
