'Comfort women' statue to be removed from arts festival after criticism from Nagoya mayor

“Nagoya Mayor Takashi Kawamura who visited it on Aug. 2, said, ‘Views that the matter (of comfort women) isn't factually correct are strong. ’Regarding the display of the girl's statue, Kawamura said, ‘It's unrelated to a lack of freedom of expression. It doesn't have to be displayed at a venue funded with a massive amount of taxpayers' money.’”
