Bieber's trip to Asia was hardly a carefree one. He came under scrutiny when he posed in front of the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, Japan, which honours former military leaders who committed war atrocities during the Pacific War.
In an Instagram post following the incident, Justin explained that he did not know of the Shrine's reputation, writing: "While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine. I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer."
