What would you like to do?
China has the world's largest population (1.3 billion people), immense fuel and metal resources and 140 million hectares of agricultural land. Since the 1970's the government …has moved the economy from a highly centralised command type with detailed, inflexible planning to a decentralised, incentive-based system with only indirect general planning and has allowed private enterprise and foreign investment (for export production). The large trade surplus, rationalisation of industrial and agricultural production and massive increases in infrastructural investment and private consumption have led to high growth rates. Japan has a strong economy based on a comprehensive education system, highly developed infrastructure and well organised industrial combines (kerietsu) that vertically intergrate production, invest heavily in capital equipment and worker training and sacrifice profits for greater market share (aided by long term bank lending). Japan specialises in high value goods (machine tools, cellphone components, industrial ceramics, motor vehicles and lorries, carbon fibre, titanium, semiconductor materials and industrial plant/equipment) that enjoy large shares of the world market and the economy is not nearly as dysfunctional as the benighted Anglo-Saxon press or the Japanese government would have you believe.
Both China and Japan make a great vacation destination, depending on what an individual plans to do or see during there visit. China is very affordable in price, while Jap…an is expensive. China does have more to offer when visiting parks, experiencing food, and the native culture than Japan.
Both are very different nations separated by ocean so an direct comparison is bound to be one sided. Furthermore, GDP is a dynamic thing and China's fast-growing economy can't… be compared to Japan's more stagnant economy. Economically China surpassed Japan in GDP because of its large population (1.4 bn+) while Japan has an small population of .12 bn. However this means that Japanese have per capita income of $42,500 while China has per capita income of only $4283 i.e. the mean Japanese is on average ten times more rich than the mean Chinese. On the other hand, the cost of living in Japan is markedly higher than in China.
If i were to answer this, i would say neither. They are both great in there own way. I would go china your both major morons. no offence but japan and china have their ups and… downs i live in japan and i am Japanese but i don't think japan is the best i mean we are cleaner and healthier than china (and richer) but that doesn't make us the best and sure china has more industry and are poorer and dirter than us but we don't hate them we are all people after all so quit picking out our faults and just get along even though i did and not every thing came from china i mean we have the biggest city in the world without china's help. so get your head out of the clouds 雪 yuki p.s only one of our alphabets came from Chinese writing and no we don't we are one of the greenest countries in the world and your people killed Innocent lives to with tanks so your just as bad so quit and your country kills people for disagreeing or sends them to work camps. p.s.s oh and if china made every Japanese invention what about the katanna or sushi or haiku or shodo or the ipad and our history isn't terrible we have a long proud history just like the Chinese Edit: China Although Japan is most popular because of their social status in the world, China is being neglected of it's history and Japan is being looked over its faults. during Hitlers reign he believed that the world should be rid of any one who is mixed. He gathered Japanese troops and attacked China. they brutally murdered innocent men women and children. they were amused by raping women and killing babies. My grandfather(who is Chinese) was in the army and he remembers footage that was shown to him of a Japanese group of soldiers tearing children from their mothers grasp and stabbing them to death with their swords.

China is mainly known for its invention of guns, but the truth is that they invented most of the worlds oldest devices. Any Japanese invention can be traced back to a certain dynasty in China when the original one was made. For example: the Kimono, mainly known from Japan, derived from the Tang dynasty in China. Plus, the Japanese language was evolved from Chinese, too. Examples: Dispute(English) 争端(Chinese) 紛争(Japanese) Love(English) 爱(Chinese) 愛(Japanese) Hate(English) 憎恨(Chinese) 憎む(Japanese) The previous reply said that trading and exporting is done in Japan for most of Asia and this is true. Yet, most of the American product labels say "MADE IN CHINA". So whose producing here? China also has one of the biggest populations in the world but they still consume less energy that Americans. Japan consumes more energy than most states. I am not bias but I have done my part in researching and I hope you can believe that China is simply being misunderstood and Japan is being majorly overlooked. P.s. , Why did the previous guy misspell Japan?! japn because it has a higher currency is 20 years ahead of most other countries in technology (including china) it has bigger ports and is a capital for business trading and exporting for most of asia. Japan has a higher standard of living, long lifespan, cleaner environment, more treaties, higher literacy rate, higher technological status and 23 times more rich per person. China has more people, more land, more resources, more production, more history and more military power. Overall in terms of serving the needs of its people, Japan.
