August 15, 2016, Tokyo, Japan: Today on the 71st anniversary of the end of World War II, tens of thousand came to pay their respects for Japan’s war dead at Tokyo’s Yasukuni Shrine, the national Shinto shrine where nearly 2.5 million war dead from the past 150 years are enshrined. Visits to Yasukuni by top Japanese politicians continue to outrage China and South Korea because it honors 14 World War II class A war criminals who are also enshrined there. Even so, dozens of Japanese lawmakers and 2 cabinet ministers visited Yasukuni Shrine today, while PM Shinzo Abe sent a ritual cash offering via his emissary. (Torin Boyd/Polaris).
