All national dailies reported on the results of an annual opinion survey conducted both in Japan and China from August through September by the Japanese nonprofit think tank Genron NPO and the China International Publishing Group. Chinese respondents who said they have a “good” or “relatively good” impression of Japan rose 10.7 points from the previous year to 42.2%. This is the highest figure since the survey was first conducted in 2005. In the 2013 survey, only 5.2% of the Chinese respondents had a favorable impression of Japan. The head of Genron NPO attributed the improvement to an increase in the number of Chinese travelers visiting Japan, among other factors.
