There were two wars known as the Sino-Japanese War :

  • The First Sino-Japanese War (1894–1895) between China (the Qing Dynasty) and Japan (the Empire of Japan), primarily over control of Korea
  • The Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) between China (Republic of China) and Japan (the Empire of Japan), from 1941 on as part of World War II

Other wars involving China and Japan were:

  • The Japanese invasions of Korea (1592–1598) was a full-scale war between a Ming dynasty and Joseon coalition and the invading Japanese (called by B.Elman "the first Sino-Japanese war" [1])
  • Japan was part of the Eight-Nation Alliance that invaded Qing dynasty China during the Boxer Rebellion (1898–1901)
  • The Jinan Incident (1928) between Japanese-backed warlords and the Kuomintang
  • The January 28 Incident (1932) between the Republic of China and the Empire of Japan in, and around, Shanghai
