    TOKYO: Justin Bieber said sorry and insisted he loved Japan and China after he stepped into a bitter fight over history by visiting a controversial war shrine in Tokyo. The troubled Canadian pop prince posted a snap of him at Yasakuni shrine on his Instagram account—tweeting the link to his 51 million Twitter followers—with the message “Thank you for your blessings.” The shrine is seen across Asia as a symbol of Japan’s perceived lack of penitence for its imperialist past. An attached museum peddles a view of World War II deemed unpalatable by most mainstream historians, casting Japan as a victim and a frustrated liberator of Asia.
