A Western-style restaurant in the northeastern Chinese city of Jilin has hung a sign requiring Japanese customers to apologize for what China sees as Japan's wartime crimes, a local newspaper reported.
The City Evening News of Jilin reported Saturday the eatery posted a sign saying, "Japanese people are barred from entry."
If Japanese customers come, the newspaper said, staff will ask them to take a "correct" view of wartime history and apologize for the 1931-1945 occupation of Chinese territory....
"We totally welcome those Japanese customers who can correctly view history," [the owner] reportedly said. "But as for those customers who still refuse to admit to history, we want to say we don't like them."
