I guess that almost young Japanese know the name of the Yasukuni shrine but they don’t deeply understand its background and essence of problem, maybe me neither. However, now I think it is very important for us to consider this shrine that is one of the postwar twist.
In short words, there is only one problem in the Yasukuni shrine. That is “Why class A war criminals are enshrined?” It’s like that Adolf Hitler are enshrined in German. It is clearly impropriety and prevent normal veneration of ancestors from us. It is another problem that Judgement is fair or unfair. Although separately enshrining seem to be natural thing, it have never been done. Current my conclusion is that it is caused by mealy-mouthed attitude of most Japanese as well as enormous political power. Therefore, I have to state my opinion.
