A Conscientious voice in Japan

Despite Japan’s recent efforts to distort history and deny the sexual slavery of comfort women, there are conscientious voice in Japan opposing these efforts. At a church in the Fukushima prefecture, there is a comfort women statue. This is a replica of the one located in front of the Japanese embassy in Korea. Muto Kiyoshi, the pastor of this church, learned about the comfort women and felt that Japan should repent for their past crimes. When Abe explicitly denied the sexual enslavement of the comfort women, Muto Kiyoshi could no longer stand by. I hope to see more conscientious voice in Japan.
