Japanese coastguard said that they were still searching for the one missing member while the tanker's crew were believed to be safe.
Thursday's collision occurred 400km north of the Oki Islands in the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea.
The Chinese vessel, the 290-tonne "Lurong Yuanyu 378", had 16 crew members in total out of which four have already been rescued.
