Would love Japan to have the world cup. It should have been England 2018, Japan 2022. But Homophobic Money Bags Russia, and its henchman Captain Crude Oil, Qatar bought their way in.

Nenad, I don't think you've fully grasped the complexity of this situation. What is important is that Abe now is looking to build a better relationship with the Koreans. And that's what the Koreans have been asking for. They aren't angry people by nature. They are just frustrated when we see people like the NHK director vehmentaly deny that war crimes took place. Surely you can see that, no?
We're on the road to peace. I don't like seeing people (especially japanophiles who know little about the two nations) suit up their battle armour against the 'enemy team'. We want peace.

Yes, and paid compensation both officially to the Korean government and to the women directly via the Asian Women's Fund.
I'm sorry, but that's a terrible excuse. Here's a scenario: Someone rapes you, apologies, gives you money, only for you find him laughing about it to his mates later on (Abe visiting the shrine and refusing to acknowledge the damage this does to the apology). This is why most Asians are irked. It's not because they are naturally angry people. It's due to deceptive apologies that push this whole thing back another 10 years.
Why can't you see this?
