Abroad Meiji 1900s Other
Japanese imperial forces near Wiju (now Uiju, North Korea) at the Battle of Yalu River (鴨緑江会戦, Oryokko Kaisen) during the Russo-Japanese War (1904–1905). The Battle of Yalu River took place from April 30 to May 1, 1904 (Meiji 37). It was the first major land battle during the Russo-Japanese War and shattered the perception that the Japanese would be an easy enemy, the war short, and Russia the overwhelming victor.

Published in the British illustrated weekly The Graphic on July 2, 1904 (Meiji 37). Art by American artist Frederick Judd Waugh (1861–1940).

Original text: “A skirmish on the Yalu: facing the Russian position opposite Wiju.”
