In this case Nikon has suddenly canceled a planned exhibit of photos by South Korean photographer Ahn Sehong related to this sensitive topic, ostensibly due to complaints. Whether it's just complaints, or threats from the ultra-right, nobody is saying at this point.
'Various reasons' halted sex slave exhibit: Nikon
Yokkaichi city is sticking to its guns though, and going ahead with the same exhibit:
In contrast to Nikon's decision, the city of Yokkaichi, Mie Prefecture, will stick to its plan to hold an exhibition of Ahn's comfort women photos at a community hall from 2 to 4:30 p.m. on June 10.
"We have received some complaints. But (Ahn) asked to use the hall and we confirmed there is no violation of city ordinances. Thus there is no reason to reject his request," Yokkaichi official Takuya Sugawa said.
