A Japanese youth delegation of about 500 members arrived in Beijing on Sunday, kicking off a week-long visit as guests of the Chinese government.

The Japanese youth trip is part of a series of visits that comes under an agreement signed by China and Japan to facilitate mutual visits of 4,000 young people every year which took effect in 2008.

The Japanese youth delegation is composed of young people of various circles, such as parliamentarians, civil servants, scholars, college students, and representatives from judicial, economic, educational, cultural, artistic and media fields.

The delegation will also visit other Chinese cities of Shanghai, Tianjin, Chongqing, Nanchang, Harbin, Jinan, Guangzhou and Guiyang.

Nishimura Chinami, parliamentary vice-minister for foreign affairs and member of the house of representatives, is leading the delegation.

Hailing the youth exchanges between Japan and China, Nishimura said such exchanges would help enhance mutual understanding between the two peoples and promote bilateral ties.

Nishimura and her delegation visited China's prestigious Tsinghua University on Monday afternoon to participate in dialogue and exchange activities with Chinese youths.
