This mod requires Brave New World. It does not replace Oda Nobunaga's Japan.
Japan is an island nation located in East Asia. For centuries, Japanese culture and faith has flourished with much independence from foreign influence and today it remains fiercely unique. Since the assumption of imperial power over the feudal shogunates in the late 1800s by the Emperor Meiji, Japan has rapidly become a highly modern, prosperous, and powerful country.
Hideki Tojo was the Prime Minister of Japan during the second world war. Responsible for the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, Tojo is considered to be a war criminal responsible for instigating the war between Japan and the United States. Although a capable military leader and a loyal imperialist, Tojo was sentenced to death by hanging following Japan's defeat and much of his legacy is today marred by his political reputation.
In this mod, Tojo leads a militaristic-scientific Japan. He is deceptive, willing to wage war, and highly expansive.
Dawn of Man
Hideki Tojo, by the grace of His Imperial Majesty, Prime Minister to Japan and her empire, you stand at the charge of a burgeoning war machine. At the turn of the 20th century, the Empire of Japan had rapidly transformed into an industrial and military superpower, and she sought now an empire like those possessed in the West. Under your directive, Japan would wage war against her classical enemies in China and South-East Asia, seeking hegemony over the Pacific coast. This would culminate into a confrontation with the United states of America, and would ultimately lead to the empire's terrible loss and your terrible shame.
Dutiful Tojo, the forces of Japan once again stand in obediance to the Chrysanthemum Throne. Though Japan's foes are many, her powers are great, and her desire for glory and honour supreme. Can you take charge and lead her Imperial forces once more? Can you build a civilisation that will stand the test of time?
Introduction: "I am Hideki Tojo, Prime Minister to the Empire of Japan. You are entering a sacred territory, and I advise that you respect this."
Defeat: "This brings to me great shame, and to the Empire of Japan great humiliation."

Changes to Japan (Oda Nobunaga)
|Dojo (Armory) (replaces the Zero)|
Japan led by Tojo is a military-science civilization. Their unique ability allows them to gain extra science whenever they claim a new coast or ocean tile. Although possible to claim this via natural border expansion, Tojo gets the most out of his ability when capturing enemy cities - especially those with already well-established ocean borders. When playing as Tojo, you should bide your time before launching your military career - which coincides well with their two powerful, late-game unique units: the Yamato, a battleship effective vs cities, and the Zero, a fighter good for defense.
