    China and Japan are seeking mutual tourism investment opportunities as both countries have experienced increased tourist flows in recent years.

    China welcomes and supports Japanese companies looking to invest in China's booming tourism industry, said Li Jinzao, head of China National Tourism Administration, while meeting with visiting Chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party's General Council Toshihiro Nikai late Saturday.

    Likewise, China hopes Japan could introduce attractive policies for Chinese companies to invest in the sector, such as hotels and travel agencies, Li added.

    Led by Nikai, a 3,000-member Japanese delegation, including heads of local governments and big enterprises, arrived in Beijing on Friday to attend a series of cultural, tourism and trade events.

    This is the largest mission between the two countries since the Japanese government's "purchase" of the Diaoyu Islands in September 2012 chilled bilateral ties.

    Li said the event offered a chance for the two countries to further boost tourism cooperation.

    Tourism between the two countries also cooled following the island "purchase" in 2012 and visits by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to the Yasukuni Shrine, a spiritual symbol of Japan's aggression that honors war criminals.

    In 2013, Chinese tourists to Japan dropped 6.5 percent year on year to 1.83 million. But as relations gradually improved, the trend is on the rise. Last year, more than 2.4 million Chinese tourists visited Japan.

    There are too many Chinese tourists visiting Japan. My Japanese friend sneer at Chinese tourists filling the Japanese airports when he travels within Japan.

    These are radical nut jobs called Uyoku Dantai. Their numbers are less than 200,000 --- and they are moronical outliers. They are not representative of the over 128 million Japanese population.

    Is your Japanese friend prejudiced ? That's not a good that your friend thinks like that --- he should be considerate and happy in knowing that people are interested in coming to the country. Tourism bring in money to the country and provide an opportunity for people to people building.
