Default Several Japanese Medals/Table Medals/Badges/ Pin for Identification

Hello all,

I recently bought a large collection of Japanese Military medals. These items were included in the lot and I was wondering is anyone could identify them, or atleast translate what is written on them. Many appear not be military at all. Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

It looks like this one was issued by the Asahi Shimbun https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asahi_Shimbun

Wow, I wasn't expecting that much detail. Thanks for the help!

As none of these are military, I will be moving them along. A special discount to those that helped identify them, if you are interested.

Thanks again!

To state the obvious, Sun Yat Sen was a Chinese leader, so I assume that medal is Chinese.
