After the First Sino-Japanese War in 1895, the Japanese empire began to progressively implement its Southern Expansion Strategy. First, it occupied Taiwan and used it as a base for its southern expansion, and then penetrated into the major cities of South China, such as Xiamen, Guangzhou and Hong Kong. It went on to successively occupy major coastal cities in South China from 1938 to 1939, following the outbreak of the Sino-Japanese War. After the Pacific War broke out in 1941, Hong Kong was occupied. While engaging in political and economic aggression and military offensives against China, the Japanese empire also actively engaged in a propaganda war, using newspapers and magazines as important tools. In the first half of the 20th century, the Japanese founded dozens of periodicals, most of which underwent three stages of management:the periods when they were run by the Japanese and Taiwanese press, by the Good-neighborly Association affiliated with the Taiwan Governor-General’s Office, and by the military. Eventually, they became tools of the Japanese colonialists’ efforts to control public opinion.
