    In 1931 Japan annexed Manchuria. Why?
    In 1937 Japan attacked China. Why?

    Maybe Japan wanted to build an empire.

    I have read that Manchuria can refer to a region that either exists in China or a larger region that exists in China and Russia.

    China and Japan have a very long history. Personal matter aside (because it might be long), my deduction is that when a country is already reached its peak and if you wanted to grow more, colonizing opens you to more resources.

    I believe that when a people wants to gain control of a territory they sometimes settle there. If they cannot settle there then they sometimes invade. If they cannot invade then they sometimes meddle.

    Just a side note, most people who immigrate to and settle in a country they are not native to have good intentions and are not invaders or meddlers of any kind.
