This chapter examines how the Japanese consular police intensified their commitment to deal with the problem of Korean resistance. More specifically, it considers the Gaimushō police's adoption of unilateral solutions to the security crises posed by the Korean independence movement in China and its connections to domestic Japanese left-wing politics. The chapter first provides an overview of Japan's campaign to conquer Manchuria in September 1931 and the collapse of Sino-Japanese cooperation before turning to the Jiandao Uprising of May 30, 1930. It then discusses the transnational “terrorist” bombings carried out by Korean resistance fighters, along with the Gaimushō's series of initiatives aimed at lowering the public profie of the consular police in China and Manchuria. The chapter concludes by focusing on the Gaimushō's attempt to link the activities of communists in Japan to those of communists abroad.

Keywords:   consular police, Gaimushō, Korean independence movement, China, left-wing politics, Japan, Manchuria, Jiandao Uprising, terrorist bombings, communists
