Nikkei and Mainichi wrote that no cabinet ministers visited Yasukuni Shrine on Aug. 15 for the second consecutive year, conjecturing that Prime Minister Abe and the other ministers refrained from honoring the war dead enshrined there perhaps out of deference to China in view of Abe’s desire to visit Beijing for a summit with President Xi in the fall.
