Inukai Tsuyoshi (1855-1932).
After attempting to reign in the Kwantung Army, and recognize Chinese
sovereignty over Manchuria, Inukai was assassinated during the May 15 Incident
(1932), in his official residence. Inukai had been a staunch defender of
the growth of parliamentary democracy in Japan. Also, he had supported
movements towards Chinese republicanism, especially by assisting Sun Yatsen
while the latter was in Japan in exile, both before and after 1911.
