It not only influenced the Far East but also contributed to the change of international relationship all over the world. the close relationship between Japan and China was originated from a long time ago, which has been lasting for more than one thousand years. A group of envoy was dispatched to China, and the Famous monk Jian Zhen also visited Japan when Xuan Zong emperor was on the throne. Those have been passed on as a much-told tale from generation to generation. However, when it came to the modern time, Japan launched the Sino-Japanese War, and the Japanese militarism became the spearhead of invading China.
