Rectangle structure is much cheaper than original design. Consider the Japanese investor has tried hard to seek money after 1997, maybe cost is also a key factor of this change.

I think that got lost in the translation somewhere. I imagine it was supposed to read something like "to the Chinese, Japan is still recognised with resentment". Those things are often lost in translation.

Acutally to be fair, considering the Japaness* atrocious reminiscence and the

their notorious unproclaimed invation against China (mostly committed in

China). One has realize that Japan's wartime Atrocities bears close

resemblance to the most horrific accounts ever committed by

man in the history of warfare. Personally I think its quiet an fair

assumption from James. Just for a record, Currently theres an estimated 1.3

Billion inhabitant residing in China, and guess what? Even today most holds

negative attitude towards Japan. Sure most Chinese enjoys Japaness

imports I.E Cars, Tv, Electronic equipment, Manga. however most people

express resentment towards the Japaness, particularly in respects to WW 2.

Its is pretty much self explanatory...

Yes, but we are dealing with a country that just cannot forget...and it wasn't really that long ago in history for many people. Of course it is a different Japan now and it is very easy to sit here and say that, but tell that to Grandpa & Grandma Shanghai.

I prefer the circle that the original design had. But then again, there are at least one billion people in China that don't want to be remeinded of Japan, so I'm just a tad out-ranked there.
