Let’s Visit Tokyo – Quick walk Yasukuni
Benoa-san‘s Canon S95 is giving us a quick overview of the rather popular but also highly controversial Yasukuni Shrine. This Shrine (Temple) is dedicated to soldiers or anyone who died fighting for the Japanese Emperor mainly during the 2nd world war. While we cannot condemn anyone fighting for their belief and country or simply force to obey orders, some people “buried” there where convicted war criminals making the this Shrine a very sensitive piece of Japanese history that many foreign powers feel very strongly against any visit maid by any actual Japanese politician.
This short video will not cover the shrine by itself nor the political implication that this temple carry, but rather a brief “aperçu” of its main entrance and long pavement walk leading to the temple.
Note: The Yasukuni Shrine is a sensitive subject and we would like to keep this topic as clear as possible from any trolls. We will erase or close the comment section all together if anyone starts going “crazy” on this topic.
Please remember before posting below, that most probably, at a certain point of time in its history your own country may had committed numerous atrocities and other genocides that cannot be expunged and/or pardoned, even ones committed centuries ago.
