Duan was recognized for his role in the suspense thriller "The Looming Storm," which also won the Best Artistic Contribution Award for first-time director Dong Yue.
The jury panel "quickly and unanimously" made the decision, citing Chinese director and actress Zhao Wei, as well as a member of the jury.
In his acceptance speech, Duan said he still felt that his acting was limited, but stories and humanity are infinite, and that is his source of happiness in being an actor.
"The Looming Storm" was the only Chinese film in competition at the 30th Tokyo festival.
