Which is worse?

The Japanese politicians are visiting again the Yasukuni Shrine, where war criminals have been enshrined.

Which is worse?

The Japanese politicians’ continued denial of atrocities committed during the Second World War, such as the Nanjing Massacre, the exploitation of “Comfort Women”, etc.?

Or the Chinese Communist leaders’ continued denial of atrocities such as the Tiananmen Massacre, the persecution of dissidents such as Liu Xiaobo, etc.?

Perhaps they are equally despicable.  Both are evil and inexcusable.

Both are terrible but I'd have to go with the Chinese Communist leaders' continued denials as they were alive when all these things happened -- heck, some of these things are happening now! :(

I am inclined to agree with you. For the reason you stated, and that they are doing it to their own people.
