Is it acceptable for Japan's prime minister and officials to visit the Yasukuni warrior shrine?

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

Yasukuni is a shrine in Tokyo that honors Japan's war dead. Among the over 2 million names indexed at the shrine are over a dozen Class A war criminals from World War II. Visits by prominent politicians to the shrine remain a major sticking point in relations between Japan and its neighbors, particularly South Korea and China. Yushukan, a military history museum on the shrine grounds also causes controversy for its allegedly revisionist views of World War II events and its lack of attention paid to comfort women, the occupation of Nanjing or the crimes of Manchukuo.

Official visits to Yasukuni shrine where dozens of tombs of A-class war criminals are put indicate Japanese officials still respect those who had commit atrocities to the whole world and to humanity, appreciate their evil patriots, and still cannot accept their defeat in World War II.
