The Arisaka Rifle was the official service bolt action rifle for the Imperial Japanese Armed Forces from 1897 to 1945. The First Model of the Arisaka Rifle was designed by Colonel Nariakira Arisaka in 1897. There are five major variants - the Type 30, 35, 38, 44, and the 99. Of all these rifles, the Type 38 long rifle and Type 99 short rifles were the most common, and were the rifle most likely to be encountered during the war in the Pacific. The Type 38 was chambered in 6.5x50mmSR, while the Type 99 was chambered in 7.7x58mm.

The early models of the Type 99 long (discontinued after less than 40,000 were made) and short rifles contained a folding wire monopod, flip up 1,500 meter calibrated ladder sights with fold-down sidebars for leading aircraft, with the hinge of the bar 100 knots, center notch 200 knots, and edge of the bar 300 knots (perhaps the most ludicrously over-optimistic sight fitted to a smallarm since the 1,000-meter calibrated sights of the Mauser C96), chrome plated bores, and a dust cover. As the war went on the quality had dropped. These late war rifles were known as substitute standard rifles (commonly called "last ditch" rifles) and were very crudely manufactured with most missing the accessories of the earlier models. Later production substitute standard rifles also had a non-adjustable rear sight and wooden buttplate, and some even replaced the sling with a simple rope passed through a hole in the stock and tied around the barrel (commonly called "rope hole" rifles).

There were various sub types, like the 6.5mm Type 97 sniper rifle based off of the Type 38 long rifle (essentially a completely normal Type 38 with a 2.5x sniper scope added), the 7.7mm Type 99 sniper rifle based off of the Type 99 short rifle, or the 6.5mm Type 1 take down paratrooper model converted from Type 38 carbines, but these rifles were rare specialty rifles and only several hundred to several thousand were made of any of these versions.

Related to the Arisaka is the Type I long rifle, a rifle made in Italy for the Japanese Navy that utilized the Carcano action but a magazine, stock, and barrel based on the Type 38 long rifle.
