"The problem of the Kuril Islands have always been out of diplomatic plane, because the ordinary people of Japan for the second year get there by aircraft and visit the graves of their ancestors", according to Shinzo Abe.
Strategically, Japan is also seeking to position itself in the region as a counterforce to China.
In a speech to a business forum on Friday, Abe harked back to Japan's role in providing aid and private sector investment from the 1980s that helped turn China into an economic powerhouse. Trump also said his country will reduce the trade deficit with Japan.
Xi is expected to visit Japan next year, with Abe returning to China to attend a trilateral summit of the leaders of China, Japan and South Korea.
Even though Abe spent just three days in China, observers said the trip was an important step in the two countries' rapprochement, and was partly triggered by the uncertainty that has grown up around the United States' policies in Asia since Donald Trump took over as U.S. president.

The Hollywood Reporter said China has imported a total of 12 Japanese films during the first three quarter of 2018.
He added that Japan sees its bilateral cooperation with China as an opportunity to forward progress in those areas and engage in constructive frank discussions.
But despite the feel-good vibes, Abe also delivered a sterner message, a Japanese spokesman said, warning China that "without stability in the East China Sea, there will not be a true improvement in the relationship". About 500 Japanese businesspeople are expected to accompany Abe to Beijing, a signal that both sides want the trading relationship - which took a deep dive from 2012 to 2014, after the rupture over the disputed islands - to keep growing.
The leaders will discuss a range of regional and global issues, including North Korea's denuclearisation.
In the past year, China has stepped up its outreach to Japan and others as it locked horns over trade with the United States.
