Japanese voters are casting ballots in parliamentary elections that analysts say could return once-dominant conservatives to power after three years of center-left rule.

Pre-election polling by major Japanese newspapers show the conservative Liberal Democratic Party -- led by hawkish former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe -- in line to win the majority of seats in the 480-member lower house of parliament.

An LDP win would bring in a government promising a tough stance with China over territorial disputes in the Pacific.
