Australian citizen live in Japan apply for tourist visa

I'm an Australian citizen living in Japan. How can I apply for a tourist visa for china? Which documents needed? I already prepared the visa form through the online website. I tried to book an appointment with China visa center but the website says no appointment in Tokyo.

You need to apply for it through the CVASC in Tokyo. The documents required include your passport, ARC card, application form printout, a recent passport size photo, and round-trip tickets and hotel bookings. I tried to book an appointment on the website, but it seemd sth is wrong with the system. You need to call the center to ask and confirm whether you still need to make an appointment.

Yes, you can. As long as the Japanese immigration let you go, there should be no problems.

Hello. I plan to visit Japan for few weeks and renew my tourist Chinese tourist visa in Osaka.
I am an EU citizen currently having a 120-day tourist visa in China finishing soon. I am planning to visit Japan, mainly Osaka. Can I re-apply for a Chinese visa there as a foreigner not residing in Japan? Thank you.

As you don't have a residence card of Japan, I'm afraid you can't reapply for a Chinese visa there.
