‘The location of the remains of Tojo have remained a mystery for decades, that is until recently, June 2021.
Despite there being no remains of Tojo and 6 others,  the executed men are  enshrined at Japan’s controversial Yasukuni Shrine.


Declassified U.S. military documents show the cremated ashes of Tojo and six others who were executed with him,  were scattered from a U.S. Army aircraft over the Pacific Ocean about 30 miles east of Yokohama, Japan’s second-largest city, south of Tokyo.
At the time it was a highly secretive mission undertaken by the Americans who did not want ultra-nationalists glorifying them as martyrs.  Understandably, it had been a long and costly war beginning with Pearl Harbour.’
Japanese lecturer Hiroaki Takazawa at Tokyo’s Nihon University found the declassified documents at the US National Archives in Washington DC.’


Below is directly from the above site:
“I certify that I received the remains, supervised cremation, and personally scattered the ashes of the following executed war criminals at sea from an Eighth Army liaison plane,” US Army Maj Luther Frierson wrote in one document dated 23 December 1948 – the day Tojo and six others convicted.
Maj Frierson wrote that he witnessed their execution and then boarded a plane with their remains – placed in separate urns. They flew to “a point approximately 30 miles (48km) over the Pacific Ocean east of Yokohama where I personally scattered the cremated remains over a wide area.”
 Officials were concerned supporters of Hideki Tojo – one of the men behind the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 – would try to find his body and treat him as a martyr.
