The visit is the latest sign of easing suspicions between the two huge countries - which between them have 2.6 billion people - dating from a month-long border war in 1962 that left around 2,000 soldiers dead. That conflict ended in a standoff with both sides accusing the other of occupying its territory.

Japan is a special country in several ways. For centuries, it remained isolated and disconnected with the outside world.
