Japanese porn actress supports China in Senkaku Islands dispute, popularity soarsWhile there have already been many developments in the Japan-China disputes over the Senkaku/DiaoyuIslands related to internet users and social networks, a former Japanese porn actress chimed in on the issue, however those in China were much pleased with what she had to say. Hotaru Akane posted a message online that stated “From a historical point of view, the Senkaku Islands belong to China.” She didn’t elaborate much, but that was all that was needed for Chinese fans to feel vindicated.

Akane wrote the post on September 5th, posting it to her Sina Weibo account, a Twitter-like Chinese social network. While not whole-heartedly taking China’s side, it became clear that she, like many us, is just frustrated with the idea purchasing some uninhabited rocks in the East China Sea. She posted a second comment a few days later, saying “I wish to scream that the money comes from our taxes!”, referring to the Japanese government’s spending of $26 million.

Akane isn’t he only former adult film star from Japan who has caused a stir, Aoi Sora, who is immensely popular in China, also posted to her 13 million followers on Sina Weibo that the people of both Japan and China should come together peacefully to resolve the issue. Her comment generated over 150,000 responses, with many agreeing, but many also politely disagreeing. Akane is now known in China mostly for her AIDS awareness activism. Her messages received very positive replies, with one person commenting that the Japanese actress was a good person, and another adding that the Japanese government needs to learn from her. And of course there were the commenters that pledged to now go out and buy all of her DVDs.
