america attacking north korea and the sauciest of us and i think this is very very dangerous. bait is going to exploit that and perches missiles for the military that they can also that reside in our course with up allies in on this kind of corner so i think we have facing a very dangerous situation. being tough on north korea help shinzo when he's both term as prime minister he claims it poses the biggest threat to japan since world war two. the past of his nation is investing in missile defense systems increasing sanctions and pushing a tough diplomatic line against the regime. sees clearly that knowledge is the kind for us to show a consolidated front against north korea. if there is any small spot for misunderstanding misinterpretation not going to be conned amount for

1:40 am
people's minds so that they would not count not something that you must. and of course. as tensions rise members of japan's if the korean community a feeling the pressure yet she is the principal of a tokyo high school aligned to the north korean regime. i always have this fear that of people's freedom and movement will be restricted and. right now. many of these school children are descendants of koreans brought here as prisoners or slave labor during world war two. when korea's subleasing too many in japan's korean community pledged allegiance to the north. as a result their schools and businesses have always been viewed with suspicion.
1:41 am
or. whenever there's an excuse the police use all sorts of nonsensical reasons to come in search of schools in raids welfare for. voting for him and if we go to all our community may face a soviet crisis i. am. not. under the watchful eyes of north korea's latest students here learn in both korean and japanese every year the regime gives two million dollars to a network of kinda got schools and universities across japan and it's. mother the most important thing we teach the students is that they can contribute to reunite korea for one more grandmother or so but you're not the. program or here in our school all gold is not to teach communism. totenberg agoa is to teach
1:42 am
the students how to live as koreans within japanese society if you are. willing and often. parents do not want a north korean education for their children and their wish is for their children to speak the language and learn the culture and live as proud korean people in japan and europe in a way that's why if they send their children here. it's. not south of them they identified. in this saying yes they school students go on a two week excursion to pyongyang. for most of them it's the first and only time i don't visit north korea. myself and other people here beyond cars we go for holidays. it's unrealistic for us to have these sorts of
1:43 am
lifestyles to go back to north korea not. bent over the day we go back to the motherland will be when really it's unified we're going to have a prosperous new day and free. i go on into a job. i'm making up with fifteen year old beyond song to hear what the students think. it's lunch time and they can take is a hive of activity when you know you're tired of. feeling like the new kid at school i try to get to nor beyond some crazy jeff garcia voice the way she did good taste good. i was expecting was going to be very great very regimented i'm surprised at how i do things that go along with oh my i don't know about yes many strict rules you know how to cut back on much but
1:44 am
among my friends we chat with discuss something and we're having a great time. songs grandparents migrated here during the korean war his parents are divorced and he lives with his mother and brother when you grow up what do you want to be. i want. company carpenter yeah right. history is one of these favorite subjects so i ask him how his understanding of the past shapes you and because you are not all saying the korean peninsula used to be one country unless he was divided into their countries but we still think about it the same way and not that that we're all koreans there but that's what we're learning. and i think it is very important to keep this phenomena that that we are
1:45 am
one so it's human and it is one of the teachers educate us about history. and the kind of problems. and the teachers to ask us to keep watching what's happening so you. because it is our motherland for hitting us. why. now there's a lot of talk about me so yes. but for myself but i i really want them to solve the situation. i'm hoping that japan and korea will have a good relationship in future. mary i ask him what he knows about america's criticism of the regime so. well we haven't covered these things in detail. because not in detail. the principal says the school teaches history from both the japanese and north korean perspective. when we teach north korea's political system.
1:46 am
we explain pyongyang's point of view. but for social studies we don't teach beyond yang's point of view we reflect how japanese school is teaching. otherwise us students would pass the college entrance exam. he admits that the north korean hero's in their textbooks the same as terrorists in japan none more so than the two men that shaped north korea. but someone's missing why. portrait of kim jong on the current laying up on the classroom mole's. regarding kim jong un so far we don't have any direct guidance or support from him. so i don't think about hanging up his picture . kim il sung in kim jong il are the leaders who
1:47 am
shows continuous support in our school seventy year history can do this so we hang up their portraits to show appreciation of. this loyalty comes at a cost japan's government recently slashed funding to any school with ties to north korea. what makes it legitimate or not fair to say their money on institutions that are constantly telling people that the japanese are your enemy it does it just doesn't make sense that the school that you talk about is legit my saying everything that north korea dollars doing you want to send your children to that school that's the question that those parents must ask themselves very seriously. song can
1:48 am
understand the criticisms of the school. bus on the internet the more we use the internet freely. there are no restrictions. this is not the time what you think only about korea. we are taught we shouldn't just criticize japan out of a. lot. he certainly seems like any other fifteen year old school boy. shaky and full of surprise and. they do know what you all are. on the whole him what about you what do you. think i might be magic yes magic then you can you show through your reading oh what a quaint truth. whoa
1:49 am

a strong stance against north korea. you muscling in a sense your husband we should start war and immediately there that's my view says they want to go back up when war starts north korea will be destroyed and just because you cannot is one of them when there is no nation when the north korean schools here will be shut down. admits that he has organized a number of demonstrations against koreans he defends these aggressive methods saying many migrants are pummeling millions of dollars to the north korean regime through their businesses to the chosen soren it's not actually i think some of them who claim to be south korean national stores in seoul and are actually close to north korea so when you look up side are there is a hidden ideology behind them so i was all the one who knows. now that he can no
1:54 am
longer hold demonstrations so takes his right wing message online you will do our business my actions that aren't. very normal activity. hate speech laws doesn't restrict any of our activity because i but when pressed seto has had enough. there is no question about north korea there are many questions about her. i don't want to answer a lot here would have gotten i don't have her let me just explain only those people who support us laws are left wing the hate speech laws are made by those who are trying to suppress our voices are killing the world we fight against a dangerous people and. we don't fight it with those who pose no threat to us coming don't worry i'll shoot by what you mustn't so we'll ok we're the worst and
1:55 am
that's it i. don't want to have the. hate speech laws are a positive step for a country the tory asli called on immigration. did you feel the high spirits laws have to be stronger well in theory there is room for those laws to be strengthened this challenge is going to be something that is not going our way we have to live with it. while others may target. young song i guessing wrong but their lives. today he's boxing team is competing against a prestigious japanese high school and. there is so much equipment and
