Demonstrations, self-immolation and more: The controversies over Japan's state funeral for Shinzo Abe
The funeral has become controversial for two main reasons — questions around Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s overstepping his powers by solely approving the funeral and the issues around the Unification Church and its links to the Liberal Democratic Party

Fumio Kishida and the LDP aim to double Japan's defence spending to around 2 percent of the GDP to deal with China and North Korea, thereby signalling the course of the direction that they intend to tread upon
Fumio Kishida’s victory owes much to LDP’s conservative wing and many of his foreign policy actions will function within the parameters that former prime minister Shinzo Abe laid down during his time in office
