The two Asian countries, China and Japan, have been fighting and using Harry Potter references over the war shrine located in Tokyo.

But, since the 1970s, the Japanese government has been criticized by three different countries. The countries are China, South Korea, and Taiwan. They criticized the Japanese government for using the shrine to be revisionist regarding World War II.
