Abe state funeral debate sheds light on other nations’ practices

State funerals have been held for former presidents and royalty such as former US President George HW Bush and former South Korean President Roh Tae-woo, while the latest overseas example is that of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain.

In Japan, there is continued opposition to former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s state funeral scheduled for September 27, including protests outside parliament and elsewhere, alongside a petition calling for its cancellation.
