TOKYO — Japanese retailers and manufacturers are still assessing the aftermath of large-scale protests that took place in several Chinese cities over the weekend amid a growing diplomatic row about the ownership of a small chain of uninhabited islands controlled by Japan but over which both countries claim sovereignty.
According to press reports, thousands of Chinese citizens took to the streets attacking Japanese-run businesses, including department stores and supermarkets, and demonstrating outside the Japanese embassy in Beijing. Japan-China relations have plunged to fresh lows since a move by Tokyo last week to secure rights to the islands, located in the ocean between the two countries, by buying them from the private Japanese citizens who owned them.
