Imperial Yasukuni shrine, Tokyo

Published on 14 April 2018 at 13:00

Yasukuni Shrine is a Shinto shrine  in central Tokyo that commemorates Japan's war dead. The shrine was founded in 1869 with the purpose of enshrining those who have died in war for their country and sacrificed their lives to help build the foundation for a peaceful Japan. Although there is some controversy around this shrine it's well worth a visit.

We visited this shrine for the simple reason that they have a nice collection of original WWII Japanese aircraft inside. A Mitsubishi A6M Zero, a Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka and a Yokosuka D4Y Suisei. The authenticity of the Ohka is unsure.
