First Sino-Japanese War 1894-95

The First Sino-Japanese War (25 July 1894-17 April 1895) was fought between China and Japan primarily over influence in Korea. After more than six months of unbroken successes by Japanese land and naval forces and the loss of the port of Weihaiwei, the Qing government sued or peace in February 1895. For the first time, regional dominance in East Asia shifted from China to Japan.  In China the war is known as the War of Jiawu, in Japan as the Japan-Qing War and in Korea as Qing-Japan War.
