Protests Against Abe’s State Funeral

Glimpses of protests in Tokyo against the State funeral for former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, September 27, 2022.

Japan’s first State funeral for a former prime minister since 1967 comes more than two months after the country’s longest-serving PM was assassinated on the campaign trail.

One reason for the anger was the cost of the State funeral, estimated to be approximately 1.7 billion yen ($12 million).
