Fact of the Day: Japanese Taiwan

After losing the First Sino-Japanese War, China gave Japan control over the island of Taiwan. While Japan's control met quite the opposition in Taiwan, they did give a two year period for the people of Taiwan to move to mainland China. Japan lost control of Taiwan after World War II, and Taiwan later became the Republic of China after communist rebels took over mainland China.
