"To a certain extent, it may be good in a way that these China-based Taiwanese businesses would start coming back to Taiwan," Lee said.

Lee also said he was eager to visit Japan again in the hope that he could experience the journey of the famous Okunohosomichi (奧之細道).

"If one says that Bushido is the traditional Japanese values of the samurai, who once ruled Japan, then the Okunohosomichi undoubtedly symbolizes Japanese attitude toward life," Lee said.

Lee said, along the route, there are many temples, in which [buddhist monks] are chanting Haiku.

"I really like to visit those temples, if my health allows me in future," Lee said.
