Japanese politicians visit the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, evoking criticism from South Korea, China, and the United States due to the shrine’s memorialization of several Japanese war criminals. North Korean media condemns President Obama’s current tour of Asia, claiming the visit will spark a nuclear arms race in the region.
