Abstract
The famous Japanese writer Ry nosuke Akutagawa, known as wizard writer, only went abroad for once in his lifetime, and this overseas journey was 4-month journey in China in 1921. After he returned from this journey, Akutagawa carefully recorded China’s image in his eyes, and published Travel Notes about China and other works. Those works reflect his pursuit for Chinese traditional culture, and also reflect disillusionment of his ideal China’s image in imagination. Those travel notes still have certain reference value for knowing his misunderstanding on China at that time and knowing Sino-Japanese relation under current situation. This paper mainly carries out analysis on China’s image in Ry nosuke Akutagawa’s works from 3 aspects, that is, deep love to Chinese classical culture, broken West Lake dream, and misplaced China’s impression.
