Yoshitaka Matsuura believes he holds a different point of view toward China and Chinese people from other Japanese in China.

'Actually, not so many Japanese know so much about modern China. They know a lot about the ancient history of China, but not so much about modern China. In fact, this might be the same for both countries,' the 34-year-old advertiser told the Global Times via e-mail.

'Therefore, I thought it is very important to understand what is happening now in China, and really learn from China, and communicate that to Japan,' he wrote.

'I think this is very important, and I hope I can keep on contributing to mutual understanding between the two countries in the modern sense.'

As a student and researcher at Gakushuin University in Tokyo, the Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University in Washington DC and at Tongji University in Shanghai, Matsuura wrote to the Global Times 'Studying in the USA and then studying in China, as well as working, this interesting experience gives me different perspectives on China.'

At the Elliott School of International Affairs, Matsuura studied closely under a leading China specialist in the United States – Harry Harding – dean of international affairs and political science until 2005.

'At Elliott School, I got to learn very pragmatic and realistic up-to-date knowledge about modern China,' wrote Matsuura.

'I was greatly impressed and intrigued by the great change in China, which I think is the largest motivation that lead my whole career to China.'

Matsuura had a chance to travel China for three weeks in 1998 as a study trip, as a course of George Washington University. Starting from Beijing, he visited Shanghai, Hangzhou and Hong Kong.
