During the period of Japanese military dominance of government before World War Two in the Pacific, the Inspector General of Military Education was one of the three most important officials in the Imperial Japanese Army. While the lack of an Army Minister would doom a Cabinet, and the lack of a Chief of Staff had an obvious impact on the high command, the Inspector directed all levels of education from basic training to the War College, and thus had great influence on Army thinking.

When the post was created in 1898,[1] after the other "Big Two", first Inspector General was Masataki Terauchi.
