GHQ religious expert recommended sparing Yasukuni Shrine

WASHINGTON, United States - An expert in Japanese religion at the General Headquarters (GHQ) that ruled Japan after World War II recommended sparing Tokyo's controversial Yasukuni Shrine in January 1947, according to documents (copies in photo) Kyodo News obtained on Aug. 13. William Woodard, then a leading authority on Japanese religion, said in a report that the shrine ''should be allowed to continue to exist,'' as its elimination ''would accomplish very little and would create additional problems.''
