【Abstract】During the G20 summit of 2016, the summit talk between China and Japan is the third time since the 2014 summit talks, providing new opportunities for the improvement of Sino-Japan relations. President Xi advocated the concept of “a community with shared future,” which has become the guiding principle for the development of Sino-Japan relations. Since March 2013, President Xi has been explaining the idea of “a community with shared future,” hoping to build a new blueprint for international fair and equitable order. The community with shared future, beyond the thinking of the great power in the Cold War, is a new proposition of the international order, and has a great guiding significance for the top-level design of Sino-Japan relations. In the future, China and Japan should take the “community with shared future” as the guiding ideology of the top-level design, try to go back to the “re-normal” development route of Sino-Japan relations, and together with the East Asian countries to promote consensus and build the Asian community with shared future.
