Blaine Harden reports for the Washington Post from Tokyo:
The two economic giants of Asia courted each other this week during a five-day visit to Japan by Chinese President Hu Jintao that played down wartime grudges and played up pragmatic cooperation.
The visit did not resolve a long-running dispute between the countries over rights to explore for natural gas in the East China Sea. Hu and Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda said they are working on it.
