JUSTIN Bieber has visited a shrine to Japanese war criminals, causing painful embarrassment to Japanese war criminals.

The Canadian pop star has been to the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo which marks the lives of Japan’s 2.5 million war dead, including convicted war criminals who committed atrocities when the Japanese occupied large parts of China and South Korea. People like General Hideki Tojo, who was executed for war crimes in 1948.

Bieber did not write on the shrine’s wall:  ‘Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Tojo was a great guy. Hopefully he would have been a belieber.’

Still, at least he said sorry. Which is more than the Japanese have ever done.
