Abstract:In 1934, 40 percent of the Japanese overseas population was in Manchuria (i.e., the geographical term used to include the political areas of Manchukuo, the Kwantung Leased Territory, and the South Manchuria Railway Zone). Both governments of Japan and Manchukuo were by that time embarked on an experimental program of mass immigration and settlement of Japanese farmers into Manchukuo. Later both governments cooperated in developing a gigantic plan of settling one million Japanese farming households within 20 years which ended in dismal failure as far as sheer numbers were concerned. However, any study of mass migration should not remain a tally sheet of immigrants settled, acreage cultivated, buildings erected, and animals domesticated. The socioeconomic and political factors, as well as any psychological ones, perceivable make a history of Japanese immigration into Manchuria during the inter-war years come alive. The objective of this study was to answer the questions: why did they go there? what happened?
