APA group is lambasted by Chinese government officials, newspapers and social media users over guestbook
One of Japan’s biggest hotel chains has sparked fury in China after placing a book in guest rooms claiming that the 1937 massacre of Chinese troops and civilians by Japanese soldiers in Nanjing was a “fabrication”.
Chinese media and government officials lambasted the Tokyo-based APA hotel group for distributing and selling the book, in which its chief executive, Toshio Motoya, disputes Chinese claims that the Japanese imperial army killed 300,000 people after it invaded the eastern city in December 1937.
