This place is a sacred place for Japan. The spirits of the dead of Japanese solders from ww2 are deified here since the end of the war. They devoted themselves to their sweet homeland. Respect here and never be impolite. You all can come here! This is open for everyone and good park with greens! There are huge gate and Shrine. You would feel very sacred atmosphere! You can buy fortune stuffs here. And there are museum for Japanese ancestors who devoted themselves to Japan!!!

A great Experience. Truly a place to visit and endure the traditional culture. You can even watch traditional Japanese shows and a WW2 museum. There is a special prayer for about the 40 min dedicated to the Martyrs.

At the centre of modern Japan, Yasukuni is as controversial as it is fascinating. Take your time to look at the people as much as the structures. You’ll need a couple of hours to absorb the atmosphere. Try the yakisoba on the way out. And don’t miss the War Museum that somehow makes Japan a victim of the Pacific War.
