A sunny Shinjuku morning as I stroll with even a slight jaunt in my step when suddenly I am stopped in my tracks…….
I almost didn’t make it down to Yasukuni shrine for the anniversary of the Japanese surrender at the end of World War II this year.
It would have been the first time in 5 years that I hadn’t and therein lay the problem.
Yasukuni shrine, Tokyo – August 15th 2010, the anniversary of the Japanese surrender at the end of World War II. Drinking beer with men wearing swastikas, riot police and a window in to the Japanese psyche.
“Err….Those German guys”. Shibuya youth in all their glory.
Just another Japanese Nazi
