    Abstract:
    The present research suggests that developments related to the Second Sino-Japanese War take place today between Japan and the People’s Republic of China, surging current Sino-Japanese relations. The two countries have always had a surging relationship, affected by an ample number of events throughout history. The Second Sino-Japanese War is a turning point in the history of Sino-Japanese relations. The war is a military conflict fought primarily between the Republic of China and the Empire of Japan that took place from July 7, 1937, until September 2, 1945. The imperialist war propaganda of the Empire of Japan during the Sino-Japanese War of 1937-45 has left its marks on the later developments of the Sino-Japanese relations, and this paper will analyze how the imperialist war propaganda of the Sino-Japanese War of 1937-45 is acting as a legacy in the discourse between Japan and the People’s Republic of China. In the light of this question, it is plausible to state that the legacy of the Sino-Japanese War of 1937-45 has left a unique heritage to the relations between the two countries; the Empire of Japan’s imperialist war propaganda is still a stumbling block in current Sino-Japanese relations.
