There were other parts of the United States that were occupied by the Japanese besides just the Aleutians: Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.

I got Japan with less than a minute to go. I didn't consider them until I knew I was looking for a country that was alphabetically between Indonesia and Kiribati.

It doesn't make sense for Japan to be an answer. Japanese troops occupied Japan? Was there some military coup I'm unaware of?

The Japanese military did kind of take over power, yes. Even if they hadn't though, the Japanese Empire would have been occupying the area of the modern country of Japan.

Not including Japan on this quiz is like not including Mongolia in an "Countries of the Mongolian Empire" quiz.

Perhaps organizing this list by percentage occupied rather than alphabetically would make it a bit more challenging--and would perhaps make Japan less than 85%.

Hi, I would like to inform you that including "Japan" as an answer for a quiz that prompts you to name countries that were a part of the Japanese Empire seems unfair. I hope the creator of this quiz reconsiders their choice of including this answer. Thank you

Why is Japan not a part of the Japanese Empire. Was Rome not a part of the Roman Empire?

That's clever, but look at the description. "Name the modern-day countries who possess territory that was occupied by Japanese troops during WWII." Japanese troops never occupied Japan during WWII. They were already in Japan before the war started. The came from Japan! Japan doesn't make sense as an answer in this quiz.

Briefly and disastrously in 1944, Japan occupied more than just the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in India but this never seems to be mentioned on any quiz. Imphal and Kohima anyone?

Finding the last country drove me almost crazy,... until i typed Japan just to relax my impatient fingers. I would argue that the Japanese army was NOT an OCCUPYING troop in Japan. Hence the clue and the wording seems a bit misleading to me. Had Nihon (Japan) changed it's name, and that modern day Japan had a different name than 1940's imperial Japan, then having Japan as an answer would have been more defensible. Aside from this, great and fun quizz. Thank you / Arigatou gozaimasu

me too!!! I was thinking it was probably a pacific island nation (that starts with either I, J or K) coz it was 100% occupied. But I couldn't really think of any island nation in the pacific that would fit except for Kiribati. It was frustrating to have forgotten Japan itself!

Significant portions of the territory they occupied were parts of extra Asian empires at the time... you have British India, the American Philippines, and French Indochina to name a few. Though now this territory is not part of the modern-day countries of any European nation.

Yes, I would have also believed they occupied parts of southern Melanesia (New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji) and/or some Polynesian islands (Tuvalu, Wallis&Futuna, Tonga, Samoa, Tokelau, Niue, Cook Islands, French Polynesia...). Apparently not. Not a single one of these.
