Founded in 1869, Yasukuni Shrine is a Shinto shrine in central Tokyo that honors Japan's war dead of 2.5 million souls. It is a place of peace and controversy, built to enshrine those who have sacrificed their lives to help build the foundation for peace in Japan. However, this shrine also became controversial after 1978 when the government decided to additionally enshrine the war criminals. The visits by Japanese prime ministers and cabinet members to the shrine have caused some concerns around a violation of the principle on separation of church and state.
This is one of the best places to visit during cherry blossom season (early April) as there are 600 cherry blossom trees, painting the entire place all nice and pink like you’ve never seen before.
