Hatoyama Yukio On Visiting Yasukuni...

...should he become Prime Minister. From The Yomiuri Shimbun:


"I have insisted that as long as there is a situation where Class A War War Criminals are enshrined there, there is no reason to pay one's respects there."


"I want to make Yasukuni Shrine into a place where the Emperor can pay his respects"
...which alludes to the unofficial ban, self-imposed by the Showa Emperor, on imperial visits to Yasukuni following the 1979 revelation of the secret enshrinement ceremony.

In case you missed the report.
