A man wearing a WW2 militar uniform poses for the cameras before entering Yasukuni Shrine on the 71st anniversary of Japan's surrender in World War II on August 15, 2016, Tokyo, Japan. Some 70 lawmakers visited the Shrine to pay their respects, but the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe did not visit the controversial symbol and instead sent a ritual offering to a shrine. Yasukuni enshrines the war dead including war criminals and as such visits by Japanese  politicians tend to provoke anger from neighbors China and Korea that suffered from Japan's militarist past.
