The First Sino-Japanese War was a conflict regarding Korean influence between Japan and China. The fighting began on July 25, 1894, and ended on April 17, 1895. This period was notable for Japan beginning to show regional dominance over China, primarily due to the fact that the Qing Dynasty's military had not been sufficiently modernized.
