Getting into the patriotic spirit of things, an archery range at a tourist site in Qingyuan, Guangdong province recently replaced its usual targets with three images of cartoonish Japanese soldiers, attracting quite a few visitors to give it a shot.
According to a staff member, the specially-made “Japanese devils” target was designed to commemorate the coming 70th anniversary of China’s victory in the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, which falls on September 3.
The archery range will unveil even more wholesome Japanese shooting events closer to Victory Day. Too bad this holiday only comes once every 70 years!
Earlier this morning, Beijing held a full-scale military parade rehearsal. At least 35,000 people turned out to watch the rehearsal on Tiananmen Square featuring tanks, soldiers and fighter planes.
