The rise of tensions in Sino-Japanese relations during the period 2012-2014 led a number of international commentators to stress the real risk of a war breaking out between the two neighbouring East Asian giants. Chinese claims over a set of islands under Japanese control known as Senkaku (and Diaoyu in Chinese) rested at the heart of the contention. Military tensions in the waters surrounding the islands and in the skies above them characterised the downward spiralling of the relationship. Two years on, war has not happened, and the Sino-Japanese relationship seems to be slowly improving.
