A memorial compound, honoring more than 1,000 "Showa Martyrs", is seen in Koyasan Okuno-in temple in Koya town, central JapanChina called on Japan to break from its aggressive past and win the trust of its Asian neighbors on Thursday, a day after news Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had honored Japanese World War Two war criminals as "martyrs". Abe sent a message in April to a Buddhist temple in western Japan housing a monument to more than 1,000 "Showa Martyrs", including wartime leaders convicted by Allied tribunals who were executed or died in prison, an official of a group sponsoring the event told Reuters on Wednesday. The term "Showa" refers to the late Emperor Hirohito, in whose name Japanese soldiers fought World War Two. News of Abe's condolence message was expected to further strain ties with China over Japan's war record.
