The office of Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda on Wednesday added a Chinese-language version to its official website, alongside existing Japanese and English ones.
“The year 2012 marks the 40th anniversary of normalised diplomatic ties between Japan and China,” said Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura.
“Putting more emphasis on providing information in Chinese is a timely action from the viewpoint of deepening mutual understanding between Japan and China.”
Relations between the Asian rivals occasionally flare over differing interpretations of history, with emotions running high over the 1937-1945 occupation by Japanese troops of vast swathes of China.
Beijing and Tokyo also have a long-standing dispute over an uninhabited but strategically coveted island chain known as Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese, which lies between Japan and Taiwan in the East China Sea.
