According to foreign news reports, the website of Japan’s Yasukuni Shrine (located in Tokyo’s Chiyoda area) was attacked by unknown hackers today, the homepage content replaced, and during this time, the China national flag appeared once.
According to Kyodo News Service reports, the following was written on the replaced homepage: “Hacked By 小饭 [Little Rice], Beach, RichMan, s4t4n” and the date “2008 December 24″ The Chinese national flag also appeared once, but soon after the flag was deleted.
Yasukuni Shrine is currently investigating this incident.
The Yasukuni Shrine is controversial because there are World War II war criminals who are buried there and it is visited by some Japanese government leaders and many Japanese who do not believe Japan attacked China in WW2.
Here is a post and video from JapanProbe:
Comments from Sohu:
Survey: How do you view the Yasukuni Shrine website hacking incident?
- Inserting the Chinese national flag does not mean it was done by Chinese people. Recently there have been continuous hacking incidents, everyone should be more on guard, and not let people with ulterior motives take advantage of you. 57 votes
- Well done! If they are not “hei ke” [hackers], then they are “hong ke” [another name for "hackers," but with the color "red" instead of "black", for "Chinese" hackers maybe], the Yasukuni Shrine is trash culture. Look, our five-starred national flag is so dazzling beautiful! 143 votes
- I do not support this kind of action, and with regards to the Yasukuni Shrine issue, it is not necessary to do this kind of “breaking and entering” business, we can openly state our position. Sometimes good intentions can also result in bad actions. 51 votes

The Americans did this. Fuckers.
With regards to Japan’s “shrine” being hacked, I first express congratulations, but this incident might be other countries stirring up trouble and sowing dissent, so we must find out the truth.
If they can make it so that the website can never be used again, then that would be the best. You guys [the hackers] have worked hard, we will always support you!
Boycott Japanese goods (Japanese women excluded).
Yes, very awesome! Who cares if it is other country’s people or our own Chinese people who did this, it was something done by the people, the international community can say nothing! Chinese people hate the Yasukuni Shrine, hacking it more would be pretty good!
I only represent the Communist Central Government, the State Council, and the various citizens of the entire country in expressing lofty tribute towards our revered hacker comrades! You guys have worked hard! The citizens of the entire country love and esteem you…
Those against this: Are you guys still Chinese? Remember history! Wake up!
Chinese “hong ke” ["hong" = red, another name for "hackers"]! I support you!
Strongly support these hacker brothers…you are Chinese people’s pride.
A stern warning to the Japanese government: If you do not tear down that Yasukuni Shrine that disgustingly and clearly pains the heart of all Chinese people, then 1.3 billions Chinese citizens’ “heart atomic bomb” will inevitably be dropped on your heads!!!
This is something a true-blooded Chinese person would do! This is silent resistance/protest!
If you want to hack, then hack, do not just put a Chinese flag. After all, it is not just only our motherland that has a grudge with them. Moreover, this will attract international condemnation. You cannot give those restless people the opportunity.
Not ugly enough, continue working, next time put a picture of Hiroshima being bombed. Thanks.
We can be sure it was not done by Chinese people. Chinese people would not put the national flag on that shitty website.
