This date of course has no importance to Japan, since the 1937 Nanjing Massacre never happened according to "The History of the World - Japan Revision"

The Chinese definitely wouldn't want Noda to be in China during the anniversary of the 1937 Nanjing Massacre. Good move China!

YuriOtaniDec. 08, 2011 - 01:24AM JST Well an apology on that date would go well. So Red China does not wish to talk to the PM. China has to let go of their grudges before progress can be made.

The upheaval means that China does not view it as worthwhile to expend much effort on new Japanese leaders. There is no question that the musical chairs in Japan has undermined the seriousness with which China views any individual prime minister. China feels that it’s not worth investing the time because they are not going to last long. That sense only deepen with Mr Noda, given that he is unlikely to be in place after the next general election in 2013.
