Why did the military dictatorship (autocracy) rise in Japan?

1)       Dictatorship had been a dominant form of government in Japan right from the beginning.
2)       Soldiers had a special position in the conventional society of Japan as it was believed that the bravery of the warriors decided the fate of nation.
3)       After 1930, the instable politics of the political parties and corruption created by Zaibatsu caused a counter reaction and the people started losing faith in parliamentary politics.
This resulted in the rise of the strength of military which with the philosophical support for reformation (improvement) developed into an integrated and powerful source of power.
