A large part of modern Japanese literature takes China as its research theme, and it vividly depicts the local conditions and customs of China, reveals the recognition of the cultures of the two countries, and conveys some ideas. In Japanese literature works related to China, there are not only looking up to and remembering Chinese history, but also contempt and misunderstanding caused by modern history. Sino-Japanese relations have a long history, and literary works can reflect the characteristics of relations and daily life between the two countries in different periods. Therefore, by studying contemporary China described in modern Japanese literature, we can not only communicate in literary form, but also better interpret the classic and modern images of China.
