Chinese President Hu Jintao Saturday visited the sights of Japan's ancient capital Nara, wrapping up a five-day tour, which has seen the traditional rivals, commit to closer future ties. On the final day of his trip, only the second visit ever by a Chinese head of state to Japan, Hu visited the Toshodaiji Temple, a revered Buddhist temple built by Chinese monk Ganjin in 759 when the city was the nation's capital. The choice of Nara is seen as a bid to remember times when bilateral relations were amicable, unlike the two countries' tortured recent history tainted by Japan's militarism before and during World War II.
