    Description
    Yoshiaki Kamagata, an Imperial military officer during World War II, is dressed in World War II garb prior to marching to offer prayer at Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo on Saturday 15 Aug. 2009. Aug. 15 marked the 64th anniversary of Japan's surrender in the Pacific War and the shrine is seen by nationalists and reformists alike to be the soul of Japan, not least because of the 14 Class A war criminals who are interred there. Wartime prime minister Hideki Tojo is among those enshrined inside the controversial shrine.
