Korea, which had for many centuries been closed to foreigners, entered into treaty relations with Japan in 1876, and, between 1882 and 1886, also with the United States of America, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Russia and France. After the Russo-Japanese war of 1904–05 Korea was virtually a Japanese protectorate until it was formally annexed by Japan on 22 Aug. 1910.
