Yasukuni is the most controversial place of warship in the entire Japan. This is where the soldiers fallen in WWII are commemorated, to the fury of Korean, Chinese and Philippine people - victims of the war. But
Yasukuni can be also comical: bad taste is commonly displayed here, including cheap nationalism and militarism. But it is also one of the very few places in otherwise complacent Japan, where anti-US sentiments are commonly displayed. Like when some old women sing traditional 'enka' songs, some with explicit
lyrics attacking US war against Japan.
