Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to take Group of Seven leaders to Japan’s most prestigious Shinto shrine later this month when they gather in the Ise-Shima area for their annual summit, government sources have said.

Abe is eager to show the leaders from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the United States and the European Union around Ise Shrine in the Mie Prefecture. The Shinto shrine is “a very good place to get in touch with the Japanese spirit,” he said earlier.
