In 1871, the first outpost of the Kyushu Garrison was stationed inside the Hiroshima Castle compound, and Hiroshima became one of the most important Japanese Army bases. In 1888, the Fifth Division was reorganized, and military facilities in Hiroshima increased further. Units of the Fifth Division were involved in all modern Japanese warfare, including the first Sino-Japanese War, the Boxer Rebellion, the Russo-Japanese War, dispatches to Qingdao and Siberia, and the second Sino-Japanese War.
