A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Thinking about visiting Yasukuni Shrine on August 15th?

Some of the characters who come back each year ( to the glee of photographers) on Aug 15 to Yasukuni Jinja

I have written about my Aug 15th visits to the Yasukuni Jinja Shrine and my experiences at the demonstrations (unreported by the Japanese media!) which take place nearby on the same date, for the past few years. Anyone interested in going tomorrow should read my former posts to get some idea of what to expect ( and what to be prepared for).
