Flavors of Youth will open simultaneously in China and Japan on Aug 4.

Adachi Masashi, deputy director of the association, says Your Name once boosted tourism as a lot of fans traveled to the picturesque settings featured in the film. He hopes Flavors of Youth will also raise Japanese audiences' interest in touring the Chinese cities depicted in the movie.

He also says the Japanese film industry, which earned less than 230 billion Japanese yen ($2.06 billion) in 2017, has been lackluster for a long time.

He says he hopes China's booming film industry will team up more filmmakers from the two countries, creating opportunities for top Japanese talent to have access to bigger budgets and a larger market to produce more international works.
