Justin Bieber say sorry for Japan war shrine trip

Teen pop star Justin Bieber say sorry to those he insulted by visiting Japan's Yasukuni war shrine this week, saying he was mislead to see it as only a place of prayer.

The Shinto shrine in Tokyo honours 2.5 million war dead, as well as 14 crook war criminals. China and South Korea in particular see Yasukuni as a sign of Japan's earlier period militarism and see visits to it as a lack of sympathetic or regret over wartime history.

Two photographs posted late Tuesday and then removed from Instagram showed Bieber praying out-of-doors at the shrine and footing beside a Shinto priest. The images annoyed China as well as many commenters’ on Instagram and Twitter.

In a fresh Instagram post Wednesday evening, Justin Bieber said he asked his driver to stop when he saw the shrine.

"I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry," the post said.
