Established by Emperor Meiji in 1869, Yasukuni Shrine honors those who sacrificed their lives serving the Empire of Japan. The Shinto shrine pays respect to about 2.5 million men, women, children, and pets that fell during or because of military activity. Those enshrined are considered deities and are worshipped equally regardless of their social standing or military rank. While there, seek out information about the shrine's controversies, including a fact that 1,068 of its enshrined souls are convicted war criminals. A visit to Yasukuni Shrine represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tokyo trip builder to plot your vacation.

8月後半は空いていた。とても長くて広い参道を歩きやっと本尊に到着。私は産まれてなかったが、ここに祀られている戦没者達の英霊に心を込めて合掌しました。Available in the second half of August. Walk a very long and broad approach, finally arrive at the temple. In remembrance of war dead enshrined here, but I was not born with all my heart, have pressed their palms together.show original

2016の初詣に行きました。 どえらい人ゴミを予想していましたが、10時過ぎでもスムーズに歩けました。 昇殿参拝も15分程度の待ち時間で入れました。 人ゴミは嫌い！でも由緒ある神社で初詣したい！という方にお勧めです。 駅から近く、道もわかりやすい。 政治的なイデオロギーが邪魔しないのであれば、ぜひ一度参拝してください。 遊就館も貴重な展示が多く、楽しめましたし、平和について考える機会を得たと思えま... read more »I went to the shrine in 2016. Was expecting a helluva garbage, but like smoothly at 10 am. The visit 昇殿 put in a waiting time of about 15 minutes. I don't like garbage! Even at the venerable shrine to new year! It is recommended for anyone who wants. Close to train station, easy-to-understand way. If not to disturb the political ideology in a take a look at once to visit please. We felt it more valuable yūshūkan Museum, enjoyed and think about peace opportunity.show original
Can't tolerate the symbol of imperialism, hate it. The comments praising the place are ubiquitous, but don't forget the miserable history of world war two. If what Hitler did should be condemned, the existence of the shrine isn't acceptable. To go to the shrine is like worshipping at the invasion of Japanese military in WW2.
for those who say they like this place, it's like saying you like going to shrine to worship Nazi leaders. If you don't tolerate Neo-Nazi, don't tolerate Yasukuni shrine.
I wonder what would happen if the German government establishes a shrine for Nazi war criminals and Angela Merkel goes there regularly to praise people like Heinrich Himmler and Joseph Goebbels...Yeah something so ridiculous like that is happening to Japan right now
With the greatest scenery and the worst history that no one want to recur.This is the only two place for me that worth to visit in Tokyo,the other is the Tokyo Tower.
Wonderfull shrine and also Peacefull. Memorials of Japanese war dead.
