business updates brought to you by qatar airways going places together. for the first time in decades is a palpable fear of nuclear war in asia. with north korean missiles close to japan's shores relations between the two countries are holding. hands. more than most. and this additional want to explore life in japan under north korea's nuclear shadow.
when this song plays across japan people have just tended to seek common from a messiah. cups ago she called it which has. he designed and built a nuclear bunker behind his goals. are good to sun i have very fast about three minutes all in all it is not kind of how long it takes to get down here into the bunker and it's the last august and yes generally it takes three minutes to get here good this that's good to go away and open six minutes is the limit on foot so trees ok. the retired grandfather
believes seven people could survive in this bunker that. it's equipped with a purifies supplies and a computer for contacting the outside world who did this and. as long as the app sure if i work so we can live here in the bunker for one week. there's a lot of food and water under the bed. put in a hole that's going over the toilet we put a plastic bag in the bucket buckets not by me. he says he's banking is needed now more than ever in twenty seven tapes north korea tested twenty three rockets including two long range missiles landed in the pacific ocean moves his new japan one of happened recently that drive you to stop building a bunker so again why you are still. prompted i thought iraq when donald trump
was elected american president i started to worry that the north korea and the usa would stop fighting and go to war and i cannot come back so i started researching the psychosis and found parts from switzerland and started building in january twenty seven thousand copies and i'm just. an avid outdoorsman he feels a missile strike could contaminate and destroy the environment he lops. she worries he's government is blindly following america's aggressive approach to north korea. well more than half of japanese people agree with america attacking north korea. i think this is very very dangerous that you quote. is going to exploit that and perches missiles for the military to get there and i also that decided on course i kicked up allies in on this kind of corner so i think
we have facing a very dangerous situation. being tough on north korea. as prime minister he claims it poses the biggest threat to japan since world war two. the past of this nation is investing in missile defense systems increasing sanctions and pushing a tough diplomatic line against the regime. sees clearly that now is the kind for us to show a consolidated front against north korea. if there is any small spot for misunderstanding misinterpretation that's going to be kind to mount for you to showing weakness weakness in by its publication. professor thomas. is the prime minister's foreign affairs advisor the shia.
and pace with which north korea has come out very much along the way to build its nuclear arsenal and missile technology have been a surprise for every one of us including the japanese chinese and the americans unlike other nuclear powers they say that they are willing to use the weapon and i think that a lot of people. it's put the country on high alert since last year. to prepare for a potential attack. in the past.
in public buildings this is the first. i'm such an event has happened in the couple . can be. whatever name move. me so you know that's just little to me not enough. in this subway station every second of this ten minute exercise is choreographed. our enemy is a lack of knowledge you must be prepared. and you should control. people's minds so that they would not carry out something that you must avoid at all cost. as
tensions rise members of japan's if the korean community up feeling the pressure here. is the principle of a tokyo high school aligned to the north korean regime. i always have this fear that people's freedom and movement will be restricted and. many of these schoolchildren are descendants of koreans brought here is prisoners or slave labor during world war two. when korea is split into many in japan's korean community pledged allegiance to the north. as a result if schools and businesses have always been viewed with suspicion. or. whenever there's an excuse the police use all sorts of nonsensical reasons to come in search of schools in reads for. writing to him if we go
to all our community he may face a soviet crisis. i think. under the watchful eyes of north korea's latest students he learn in both korean and japanese every year the regime gives two million dollars to a network of kindergartens schools and universities across japan it's. the most important thing we teach the students is that they can contribute to reunite korea for no one will come up there so if you're not the. program or here in our school all goal is not to teach communism. totenberg agoa is to teach the students how to live as koreans within japanese society if you are. old enough and. parents do not want
a north korean education for their children. their wish is for their children to speak the language and learn the culture and live as proud korean people in japan one that's why they send their children here. it's. not south of them they identify. and they sing it 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 lifestyles to go back to north korea not. bent over the day we go back to the motherland will be when the real is unified hold on to a prosperous new and free. i
go on into a job. amazing 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 you know when you're tired of. feeling like the new kid at school i try to get to nor beyond some crazy jeff garcia voice or your voice you did a good pace good. i was expecting was going to be very great very regimented i'm surprised at how i rule things go a long way off my i don't know about yes many strict rules you know how to cut back on much but among my friends we chat with discuss a call thing and we're having a great time. songs grandparents migrated here during the korean war
he's 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. 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 this kind of research but we still think about it the same way that we're all koreans there but that's what we're learning when i see what you all and i think it is very important to keep this phenomena that that we are one so it's human and it is one of the teachers educate us about history. and the kind of problems. and to teach us to ask us to keep watching what's happening so you. because it is our motherland i think.
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 the future. i ask him what he knows about america's criticism of the right gene 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. we explain pyongyang's point of view. but for social studies we don't teach going yang's point of view we reflect how japanese school is teaching.
otherwise us students won't 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. 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 show as continuous support in our school seventy year history can do this so we hang up their portraits to show our 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 in 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 understand the criticisms of the school. bus on the internet the more we use the internet freely. we are in all restrictions. this is not the time what you think
only about korea. we are taught we shouldn't just criticize japan or. 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 move on the him what about you what do you are and i might be magic yes magic can you can you show through your reading oh what a quaint trip. oh she'd be there to do that. that's not the only trick real nice song has obviously seen. this year he made it
on to the school's prestigious boxing team. too bad they tried for. teaching. them. but. his father wanted him to play soccer songs passion is to be in the ring. tones saying if i become professional i want to be a representative of my home country career. that's another thing he's bob knight i don't want to hear a. lot. of then i go out with my pals are going to get all the heights that he's a real so i think the people said i don't like him because in my heart i always want to be koreans i always think about that last. but he understands his father is just trying to protect him. so long i remember
when i was in kindergarten you know i say this is my name and i'm korean that in that. my friends think the law my mother and father told me that it is the country where people live. since then i've realized that to many people here think this way. in this tense political climate a number of far right groups are studying these divisions. of. her. lease. we're outside the south korean embassy where the authorities worked hard to stop
a number of trucks driven by protesters. not the. one to begin with because the leak. leaked. to meet. japan's new heights beach was banned such groups from demonstrations in public places so to get around the walls they use trucks to. it's actually for the to follow the spots because the protesters stop the five minutes spots expats and then just travel. when they struggle to get closer to the embassy there and it seems to us that. i do. not. want
a. little bit yes. they're really going to deal with my not in the not in on i'm happy couple feel good. and right wing activists attacking things even further. in late february tokyo's early morning quietly shattered when two men were arrested for allegedly firing multiple gunshots at north korea's de facto embassy. more and more we may as with one of the iran move is behind these right wing groups and. here you key says it is the leader of a new political possible japan first he supports a prime minister a strong stance against north korea. you mustn't in a sense a husband we should start war and immediately there that's my view says the only
going to work when war starts north korea will be destroyed and this regime cannot is one of them when there is no nation will the north korean schools here will be shut down. admits that he has organized a number of demonstrations against koreans have been things 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 nationals jordan's older 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 longer hold demonstrations. takes his right wing message online you will do our business with my actions that aren't. there normal activity or his 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 what. i don't want to answer a lot here would have gotten i don't have a let me just explain only those people who support 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 dangerous people and. we don't fight it with those who pose no threat to us coming don't worry i'll ship by what you must so we'll ok where the worst that it. i don't know what to either. hate speech laws are a positive step for a country the tory asli caught on immigration.
did you feel the high stakes wars have been stronger well in the theory there is room for those laws to be strengthened but this challenge is going to be something that is not going away 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 pictures. i feel deschooling must be very well established. right now i'm nervous but even if you weren't here i would still try to give one
hundred percent of my best. song will be tossing a japanese boy before either of them do you think you have the skills to be. confident. but. when the competition begins with. is on the back. this is good as it was. i think. soon it's tough to contest three rounds. he's slow to start and the power lines more times.
than it was there are. a philosopher. and i for. that. i guess is the bad continues song projects back attacking ensure good. but it's not enough i. mean they were there next to a moment. i didn't do well. i was so nervous my feet couldn't move and i got punched on and. this is something i need to work on constantly. like. when the contest is there is no
animosity the to take stop trying to get. my philosophy is in the arena it doesn't matter who it is you pull countries out of the ring i'm building friendship to you this. song. is about more than chasing the blue a victory. as a result of a true sport i like to tell them we are not bad people and we are not hostile. and everyone should get along. and i would like to raise them back to north korea. and if i win i can show everyone. that i did it as a career. and. that's how i feel.
