Default Japan Tour: Yasukuni Shrine Tour

Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo is without doubt Japan's most controversial shrine and previous visits to the shrine by Japanese Prime Ministers and government officials have enraged public opinion in South Korea and China.

However, the controversy surrounding Yasukuni is fairly recent, stemming from the decision in 1979 to enshrine Japan's wartime leader General Hideki Tojo and 13 other Class-A war criminals (found guilty by the victorious allied forces after World War II at the The International Military Tribunal for the Far East).

Up until that point, Yasukuni had not featured on the political radar at all.
