  Yasukuni Shrine
by salisbury3933

This is it, the most controversial of Tokyo's attractions, and the place that causes so much political fuss.

Those who want to read what the fuss is about can have a look here.


The grounds and the shrine itself are nothing out of the ordinary.

The attached museum is worth visiting, although there is a lot of revisionism there. In not one place is there any recognition that Japan may have done anything wrong in any of its actions in WW2.
