People where seem all in tears, one told World Forum Live reporter “I can’t get over my sadness, this is heart breaking, seeing Shinzo Abe put to rest, I cant get it off my heart

I came here to lay flowers and say a prayer,” consultant Tsukasa Yokawa, a 41 years old, told reporters, describing Shinzo Abe one of the greatest prime minister in the world, not just the greatest in Japan who did a lot to elevate Japan’s presence” on the global stage

After the service, a hearse carrying Abe’s body departed for a final tour of some of the political landmarks he served in throughout his career, he was taken from one place to the other, all the places where filled with mourners, including those in the the parliament, prime minister’s office, and headquarters of his ruling Liberal Democratic Party.

Outside each, staff and officials including ministers and senior Liberal Democratic Party members stood sombrely. They pressed their hands together in minutes of respect and bowed their heads as the car carring Shinzo Abe's body arrived.
Shinzo Abe’s widow Akie sat in the front of the hearse, carrying her husband’s mortuary tablet inscribed with his posthumous Buddhist name, and bowed back. She was not in her happy mood

Along the route from the temple to the site, residents gathered to offer prayers and take photographs of the former leader’s last procession.

Shinzo Abe Assassination Security flaws
Abe was campaigning in the western city of Nara when he was shot. The murder suspect, 41-year-old Tetsuya Yamagami, is in custody and has told police he targeted Abe because he believed the politician was linked to an organization he resented.

Yamagami approached him from behind in broad daylight, in circumstances that have raised questions about security across the country.

Police searches of the suspect’s home have found pellets and other possible components for building a gun like the crude weapon used in the attack, Japanese media reported Tuesday, citing unnamed investigative sources.

Yamagami spent three years in Japan’s navy and reportedly told investigators that his mother’s large donations to a religious organization had caused the family financial troubles.

The Unification Church, a global religious movement founded in Korea in the 1950s, said on Monday that Yamagami’s mother was a member, but did not comment on any donations she may have made.

Shinzo Ade Funeral Condolences pour in
Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi said Tuesday that more than 2,100 condolence messages had been received from 259 countries, territories, and international bodies, while more keep on coming

On Monday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken made a previously unscheduled stop in Tokyo to pay tribute to Abe, describing him as a “man of vision.”

And Taiwanese Vice President William Lai was also in Tokyo for a surprise trip, Taiwanese media said.

The visit has the potential to anger Beijing, though Hayashi said Lai was traveling in a private capacity and there was no change to Japan’s policy on non-governmental working relations with Taiwan.

Public memorials for Abe are expected to be held at a later date.
Abe was the scion of a political family and became the country’s youngest post-war prime minister when he took power for the first time in the year 2006, at the age of 52.

He resigned two years ago, the year 2020 at the end of his second stint after suffering health problems. His hawkish, nationalist views were divisive, particularly his desire to reform the pacifist constitution, and he weathered a series of scandals, including allegations of cronyism.

But he was lauded by others for his economic strategy, dubbed “Abenomics”, and his efforts to put Japan firmly on the world stage, including by cultivating close ties with former US Presidents, Barack Obama and Donald Trump which he continue even to his death
