Religious fanatics? People that hate temples? Copycats? Maybe even people who are tired of tourists and try to ruin it so that less visitors come? Or....just....simply for the pleasure of destroying things (vandals).

Yasukuni has this kind of thing done regularly. It's probably has some connection to one of our dear neighbours across the ocean.

Has any took a sample of the liquid and had it analysed in a lab yet?

I am sure they did, just not made public beyond it being oily. Not sure what making it public would achieve.

The stains were made by an oil-like liquid

Seems a little odd? What ever this stuff is, it doesn't seem to be causing any immediate damage to the temples themselves which raises the question of what the agenda is here?

Arrest the guy and charge him with wasting everyone's time.

Religion of any sort is negative, what ever did religion do that's positive.

Where are the cops? Why can't government put in security guards?? If they don't have money, charge 100-200 yen voluntary donation at entrance just like many museums do in US.

Somebody just wants their 15 minutes of fame. "All I have to do is squirt a little cooking oil, and it's all over the news"

Whatever kind of liquid it is, I'm sure it's not as nasty as some of the things that were enshrined there.

Soap and water easily clean oily stains. But the best thing to do is to get a similar substance and stain the rest of the wooden areas to make them all look alike and will freshen the whole appearance. Problem solved.

It is unfortunate that even temples and shrines are not left alone. The human beings neither seemed to have values for arts nor for culture.

Transparency, honesty, having a more informed public...you know, silly things like that.

NHK flash news. Arrest warrants have just been issued for two Chinese females, in regard to the oil splash on Meiji Jingu.
