In China, research on Japanese popular culture (including cultural content) began growing gradually in the 1980s and it increased significantly from 2007. It peaked in 2010, declined in 2011 and 2012, and reached its second peak in 2016. It has been gradually declining since then, partly due to the coronavirus pandemic, leading to the current situation.
This paper uses the academic resources of China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), a comprehensive Chinese academic information database, as well as quantitative analysis visualization software called “cite space”, to perform knowledge mapping (visualization graphs), which involves using computational methods such as keyword clusters. Knowledge mapping is performed to analyze the chronological changes in Japanese popular culture research in China, issues researchers are interested in, current research topics, the distribution of research content, and future research trends.
Today, it has become increasingly difficult to assimilate all of the intellectual achievements related to Japanese cultural research which has exploded in China in a short period of time. It is hoped that research tools such as big data and quantitative analysis visualization software will facilitate cross-cultural intellectual and cultural exchange more quickly and smoothly in the future.
Keywords: Japanese Popular Culture, CNKI, Cite Space, Knowledge Mapping, Quantitative Analysis
