Yasukuni Shrine Visit Always Angers

Every visit to the Yasukuni Shrine by the Prime Minister of Japan, enflames all of Japan’s past war crimes. Enshrined are 14 Class A War Criminals (See the list here¬†at China.org.cn of course!) among plenty of soldiers. A possible future PM, Shinzo Abe recently visited the shrine, possibly causing a stir with both Chinese and Koreans during this island dispute. Here are a few photos from a visit in 2010.
