Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited Pearl Harbor in what President Barack Obama called a "historic gesture."
Abe offered "sincere and everlasting condolences" to the U.S. service members who died at Pearl Harbor 75 years ago.
Abe called the renewed Japanese-U.S. alliance an "alliance of hope." He said Pearl Harbor is a symbol of tolerance and reconciliation.
The Guardian reports Japanese leaders have been to Pearl Harbor before, but Abe is the first one to visit the USS Arizona Memorial.
