    Justin Bieber isn't helping international relations. The 20-year-old Canadian crooner's tourist adventures have caused upset... again.

    The latest incident occurred during a trip to Tokyo, where he visited the Yasukuni Shrine, posting a photo of his visit on Instagram. However, the memorial is controversial because, in addition to honoring 2.5 million men, women, and children who lost their lives during combat, 14 war criminals are buried there. For many in China, Korea, and other Asian nations, the shrine represents the worst of Japan's imperial militarism, and visitors of it are thought to have a lack of understanding of its history.

    After comments appeared on the photo, many from Beliebers in China, the "Boyfriend" singer deleted the image and posted a new one of a headline from Time magazine detailing his visit to the shrine.

    "While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine," he wrote. "I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan."
