The story of the Amber Palace just symbolizes the history of grievances and grievances between the two countries. After the Peony Club incident, Japan continued to push forward with the annexation of Ryukyu.

The territorial ownership in international law has not been finalized. In international relations, China has recognized the Ryukyu "two genera" after the Peony Society Incident, but the Ryukyu tribute to

In May 1875, Japan appointed Michiyuki Matsuda, the Minister of the Interior, as the "Ryukyu Disciplinary Officer" to handle the affairs of the Ryukyu abolished domain and the establishment of a county. Japan asked the three Ryukyu officials to go to Tokyo and brought back an order demanding that Ryukyu and the Qing Dynasty break diplomatic relations, but King Shangtai refused. Matsuda went to Naha in July and directly submitted an order to King Shang Tai, making nine requirements. To sum up, the most important things are: stop the tribute and canonization to the
Qing Dynasty; change the name of the Meiji era; ask Shangtai King to go to Beijing to express his gratitude; cancel the Ryukyu Pavilion in Fuzhou, and the original matter was under the jurisdiction of the Japanese consulate; garrison in Ryukyu; The criminal law of Japan follows the Japanese criminal law; the reform of feudal government, etc. King Shang Tai still refused. Since then, Ryukyu has launched a petition movement in Tokyo, appealing to Japan to prevent the country from being destroyed, but Japan rejected it. However, Japan was mired in internal political disputes and did not complete the "sanction" all at once. Unable to make a plea to Japan, Ryukyu pinned its hopes on China.
