2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and the 41st anniversary of the conclusion of the China-Japan Friendship Treaty. As the G20 summit will be held in Osaka, Japan in June, the "Chinese Animation Tour to Japan" series of activities will also be held in Osaka at the same time. The content of the event includes "Chinese Animation Tour in Japan-From Ink Painting" tour exhibition, Chinese style animation film screening, dialogue between Chinese and Japanese animation masters, etc.

For a long time, the animation and cultural exchanges between China and Japan have been close, and the older generation of artists have left many good talks about friendly exchanges between the two sides. In the 1940s, the animated film "Princess Iron Fan" by the Wan Brothers also crossed the border and became the first animated feature film on the big screen in Japan. On the other hand, the animation "Catch the Turtle in the Urn" and the puppet "The Emperor's Dream" jointly completed by the Chinese artist Chen Boer and the Japanese animation expert Fang Ming (Chih Nagashito) have laid a solid foundation for the creation of animation in New China. Since the 1960s, "art films" represented by "A Harassment in Heaven" and "Nezha Nao to the Sea" have become world-renowned and have had a profound influence on the Japanese animation industry. And "Astro Boy with Iron Arms" created by Osamu Tezuka, who was once influenced by the Wan brothers, is the first series of cartoons on Chinese TV screens. To this day, a "group photo" of Monkey King and Astro Boy painted by Tezuka is still a treasure cherished by the Chinese animation industry and symbolizes the friendship between the two countries in the animation field.

The "Chinese Animation Tour to Japan" series of activities will be led by the best ink art in Chinese traditional and contemporary animation. His works include "Landscape Love", "Little Tadpoles Looking for Mother", "Muddie" and other "Chinese Animation Schools". Works, comics and comic strips include Feng Zikai's "The Willow Head on the Moon", Zhang Leping's "San Mao Wandering Story", He Youzhi's "Little Erhei Marriage", Wan Laiming's "Monkey Fishing for the Moon" and other century classics. At the same time, the new forces in the exhibition lineup are eye-catching. The representative works of new media comics, Lin Dihuan’s "Kobayashi Comics", and the backbone and new generations such as Tango, Laoshu, Nie Jun, A Geng, Yao Feila, Benjamin, and Zadao The works of cartoonists will be a bright spot in the exhibition.

Civilizations exchange due to diversity, mutual learning due to exchanges, and development due to mutual learning. From ink and wash, Chinese animation is increasingly adding new colors. We will use animation to tell the story of Chinese culture and the story of China's development, and listen to the voices of Japanese audiences with a sincere heart. We believe that the holding of the "China Animation Tour in Japan" series of activities will not only promote the development of animation and cultural exchanges between China and Japan, but will also use animation as a carrier to promote mutual understanding between people from all walks of life in the two countries, especially the younger generation, and make the friendship between the two peoples Animation has become more beautiful, allowing the friendship between the people of China and Japan to continue for generations.

Jincheng speaks at the China-Japan Friendship Story Meeting


He recalled that he was deeply shocked after visiting and inspecting animation art landmarks all over Japan. In 2015, he founded China's first private animation museum-JC Animation Museum in Guangzhou, and wrote the book "A Manga Walk in Jincheng" at the same time.

"JC Story" came through Jincheng's mouth. A wonderful movement of friendly exchanges between China and Japan in animation filled the city of Osaka in the breeze in June. The exhibition of "Chinese Animation in Japan-From Ink Painting" was exhibited. The opening of Osaka brought out a gentle and rich atmosphere.


Reunion warmly, "Monkey King" goodbye "Astro Boy"


The animation and cultural exchanges between China and Japan are close. The "Chinese love" of Osamu Tezuka, the "God of Japanese Animation", has become a good story in the animation industry in China and Japan. In 1940, the young Osamu Tezuka was watching Asia’s first feature-length animated film "Princess Iron Fan" directed by Wan Laiming and Wan Guchan. He determined to be engaged in the animation industry and created the world-famous anime masterpiece "Astro Boy" ". Osamu Tezuka treats Wan Laiming as a teacher. He once wrote the comic "My Monkey King" to pay tribute to the director of Wan Laiming's "A Harass in Heaven".


"The Monkey King" and "Astro Boy" by Osamu Tezuka


Osamu Tezuka came to China three times in his life to visit Wan Laiming. The cartoon of "Monkey Goku and Astro Boy" symbolizing the friendship between China and Japan was the animation design of "Haming to Heaven" when he visited Wan Laiming in 1979. Yan Dingxian created it together. And the friendship of "Astro Boy" who came to China three times to meet with "Monkey King" has continued to this day.


Wan Laiming shook hands with Osamu Tezuka


According to the organizing committee of "China Animation Japan Tour", with the support of Shanghai Fine Arts Film Studio, this exhibition solicited the original work "Monkey Wukong and Astro Boy" to go to Japan for exhibition. "Monkey Wukong" will meet again "Ah! The important moment of "Tong Mu" will be presented warmly in Osaka. From "Astro Boy Sees Monkey King" to "Monkey Boy Seeing Astro Boy", this shows the intention of the exhibition's planning. In addition, on the opening ceremony of the exhibition, Takasaki Matsutani, Chairman of Tezuka Production Co., Ltd., will also attend and give a keynote speech at the forum together with Kinjo. I don't know what kind of touching scenes this pair of Chinese and Japanese "anime friends" will look forward to when they appreciate "Monkey Goku and Astro Boy Side by Side", which is worth looking forward to.
