Abe makes offering to Yasukuni Shrine

posted on October 17, 2015

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has sent an offering to Yasukuni Shirne at the start of its autumn festival.

The shrine honors Japan's war dead. Those remembered include leaders convicted of war crimes after World War Two.

Abe offered a potted plant to the shrine on Saturday, under his name and title of prime minister.

Abe is unlikely to visit the shrine during its 4-day festival.
