    Default The Invasion of Hokkaido: The Industrial Japanese Empire v Primitive Mishihase Tribes

    In 658-660, General Abe no Hirafu was ordered by the Emperor of Japan to invade Hokkaido island and occupy it in order to increase the territories under the control of the Japanese Empire.

    General Hirafu went to Hokkaido with a large army and navy to occupy the island, and he had a fleet of battleships armed with archers firing flaming arrows and catapults that could hurl large stones or incendiary bombs called fire pots which could be filled with molten iron or oil. His armies also had armor piercing reflex bows, flaming arrows, armored cavalry, fire jars, and catapult hurled fire pots.

    Below are images of the type of battleships used by the Chinese and Japanese Empires called Louchuan:





    After the campaign of General Hirafu's expeditionary forces was over, his trophies included at least 2 live bears, 70 bear hides, and 353 prisoners.

    Even during this time period, the Japanese, like the other empires of Asia and Europe were already industrialized and possessed factories like animal mills, water mills, and wind mills, which were used to mass produce goods, blast furnaces to mass produce cast iron, steel, and compound steel, and even oil refineries to mass produce oil for use in soap, oil lamps, candles, lubricants, cleaning oils, and incendiary bombs.

    The Japanese in particular invented the water scoop mill, a type of water mill that generates mechanical power by letting water from a downstream river flow into the hollow container at the end of a lever which then empties when the weight of the water drags the lever down, a counterweight then pulls the opposite end of the lever down and the end with the container back up so that it can again be filled with water, generating a reciprocating motion that is used to power hammers in forge mills, saws in sawmills, stamps in stamp mills used for mining, and to make wool textiles in fullers, and pottery in pottery mills, and this allowed them to produce goods on an industrial scale, with the time period from 500BCE-1700 being the 1st Industrial Revolution, a technological revolution that turned the entire Eurasian landmass into a large floating factory and gave the empires of Asia and Europe the power to conquer and subjugate the tribal societies of Eurasia and later the tribes in the Americas, Africa, and Australia.

    I wish they would, in Samurai Showdown, there was a segment where a tribal girl called Nakoruru called the Japanese Empire: "the scourge of the Ainu" when having an argument with the main character, the samurai called Haohmaru, during his journey to Hokkaido. The Invasion of Hokkaido makes great material for a historical movie or anime that shows the clash between industrial civilization and primitive tribes.

    There was already a movie about the clash of Japanese and Korean ironclad battleships in the 1500s called: The Admiral: Roaring Currents: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ad...aring_Currents

    They finally made an anime about this called Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World. In this story the scientifically advanced Empire, which represents Japan, is at war with the primitive and superstitious Nebulis Sovereignty to the northeast which uses witches and magical creatures as its soldiers and represents the tribal societies in the northern and southern islands near the Imperial Japanese Mainland.

    The story also has a historical parallel with the Russian Empire, founded by Ivan the Terrible in 1547, that conquered the large amounts of territory east of the Kievan Rus, in order to increase the territory of Russia. The Russians also possessed explosives, firearms, artillery and battleships, like the Japanese at this point in time, which were mass produced in thousands of industrial facilities throughout the Empire. With such great firepower, Ivan the Terrible subjugated the Kingdoms of Astrakhan, Kazan and Sibyr, and also the tribal societies further east of Russia. In one siege alone, the Russians battered an enemy city using 150 howitzer cannons.

    Another interesting parallel would be between the Viking Empire, which possessed the same industrial level technology as Japan, and the tribal societies in North America that were conquered by the Empire.

    The Viking Empire which was founded by Rurik, its 1st emperor, sent a fleet of battleships led by Erik the Red to conquer the island of Greenland, making it the 1st North American territory to fall under Caucasian control.

    The Vikings introduced the following innovations to make their navy the most powerful in Europe at that time:

    Tacking - the ability to sail into a headwind by moving an adjustable triangular sail back and forth to catch the wind and push it back, generating a propulsive force that moves the ship.

    Sun Compass - a compass where heading is determined by the position of the shadow cast by the sun on a wooden cylinder placed in the center of a dial with lines on its edges enabling navigators to determine the degree of inclination to north, south, east, and west.

    Shield Armored Ship - a ship with the sides of its hulls covered in large metal discs that act as a shield from enemy projectiles.

    The synopsis:

    A great war has raged for years between the scientifically advanced Empire and Nebulis, the realm of the witches―until the youngest knight ever to receive the title of the Empire's strongest meets the princess of the rival nation. Though they are sworn enemies, the knight is taken by her beauty and dignity, and the princess is moved by his strength and way of life. Will the fighting between them ever be allowed to end?
