  • October 28, 1891The Mino-Owari Earthquake strikes Gifu Prefecture.
    It was the largest earthquake in Japan's history. But there is an ugly pun in the name of the earthquake. It was an artificial earthquake.

    In those days, the US was called "bikoku" (美国) or "beikoku" (米国). Traditionally speaking, "bikoku" was generally used. In China and South Korea "bikoku" (美国) is currently used too. For patriotic Japanese, the name was beyond all bearing. "Bikoku" (美国) literally means a beautiful country. On the other hand, "beikoku" (米国) literally means a rice country. It is quite confusing to call the US a rice country. The Japanese government renamed it just to ridicule the US.
  • November 6, 1901 - (birth) Yang Kaihui, the second wife of Mao Zedong from 1920 to 1930.
