But like I heard. Some Chinese actually admire him, even though he invaded them.
Do Japanese also admire him? or kind of don't care?


I would have to say that only our Japanese members on this site could really answer that question and while doing so, their opinion might even differ..

(see what I did there?)

NO? Ok, I would say that each Japanese just like the Chinese, would have differing opinions, some might admire, some might despise and some might not care at all. In other words, your question can't truely by answered without much vagery

I Rescently saw a japanese movie about Ghengis Kahn. It was titled "Aoki Ôkami: chi hate umi tsukiru made". They kind of portrayed him as the good guy. It may just be a movie, but it also gives some insight on what people(at least the writers) think of it.

There's a legend in Japan that says that Minamoto no Yoshitsune fled to Mongolia and took on the name of Genghis Khan, so that they are really the same person. Though that is just a legend of course.
