Relations between the two countries started in the 19th century. A foundational event was the Ertuğrul incident in 1890. The Turkish frigate Ertuğrul sank off the coast of Wakayama, Japan, after having an audience with Emperor Meiji. The surviving sailors were taken back to Istanbul by two Japanese frigates.

In 1985, this gesture of kindness was reciprocated during the Iran-Iraq war. As hostilities escalated to an extent that all aircraft were threatened with being shot-down, Turkey sent an aircraft in to rescue 215 Japanese nationals who were living in Tehran at the time.[1] The Turkish government issued a statement: "We have not forgotten the rescue of the sailors of the Ertuğrul. Thus, once we heard there were Japanese citizens in need of help, we went to their rescue."
Following the founding of the Republic of Turkey, diplomatic relations were established in 1924 and first embassies were opened in 1925.

2010 marked the 120th anniversary of Turko-Japanese relations. In this year, Turkey held the "Japan Year 2010 in Turkey." On July 10th 2010, Prince Tomohito of Mikasa, cousin of the emperor, attended the opening ceremony of the Kaman Kalehöyük Archaeological Museum. The museum was built with funding from Japan. The prince has often engaged himself actively to promote Japanese-Turkish relations.

Love these threads where OP just copy paste something and never adds anything personal to the thread.
