Keiko Nakamura poses for pictures at home during an interview with Reuters, in Shanghai
Keiko Nakamura poses for pictures at home during an interview with Reuters, in Shanghai, August 28, 2015. Sino-Japan relations have long been affected by what China sees as Japan's failure to atone for its occupation of parts of China before and during the war. While there are little signs of a flare-up in such anti-Japan sentiment this time, some residents say they aren't taking any chances. Nakamura, a Japanese translator living in Shanghai, won't venture out on Thursday because of fears her nationality could make her a target of violence. Picture taken August 28, 2015. REUTERS/Aly Song
