worries she'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 you can exhaust system i think this is very very dangerous. bait is going to exploit that and purchase missiles for the military that they can i also that decided mark most likely thought the 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 us nation is investing in missile defense systems increasing sanctions and pushing a tough diplomatic line against the regime. sees clearly that
8:38 am
knowledge is the kind for us to show a consolidated front against north korea. if there is any small spot for misunderstanding misinterpretation knott's going to be kind amount for you to showing weakness. weakness in by its publication. professor thomas. is the prime minister's foreign affairs advisor to the shia in power 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
8:39 am
the weapon and i think that a lot of people. it's put the country on high alert since last year been staging evacuation drills to prepare for a potential attack. in the past back i should really be prepared for the life of likes in public buildings this is the first time such an event has happened in a couple. more weeks.
8:40 am
in this subway station every second of this 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 count not something that you must avoid. of course. as tensions rise members of japan's if the korean community up 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. right now. many of the schoolchildren are descendants of koreans brought here as prisoners or
8:41 am
slave labor during world war two. when korea's submission to many in japan's korean community pledged allegiance to the north. as a result their 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 reid's welfare for. voting for him and if we go to all our community he may face a soviet crisis. and. 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 kinda got schools and universities across japan and.
8:42 am
the most important thing we teach the students is that they can contribute to reunite korea for one will come up 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 the students how to live as koreans within japanese society if you're. going to have a family. parents do not want a north korean education for their children and their wish is for their children to speak the language and then 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
8:43 am
don't visit north korea. myself and other people here we own 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 mother will be when really it's unified holcombe got 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 trying to get a feeling like the new kid at school i try to get to north beyond some crazy deaf garcia voice the way she did her good pay for good.
8:44 am
i was expecting was going to be very great very regimented i'm surprised at how i do things go a long way off my i don't know about yes many strict rules you know going to a boxing match but 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. 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
8:45 am
about it the same way that we're all koreans there but that's what we're learning when i see what you 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 the teachers to ask us to keep on watching what's happening so you. because it is our motherland for hitting us. now there's a lot of talk about me so yes. but for myself but i i really want them to solve the situation with your home i'm hoping that japan and korea will have a good relationship in future. i ask him what he knows about america's criticism of the right gene so. well we haven't
8:46 am
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 beyond 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
8:47 am
direct guidance or support from him. so that 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 because their money on institutions that only telling people that the japanese are your enemy it does it just doesn't make sense that the school that you talk about
8:48 am
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. wrong song can't 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 or can i talk 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 move on the him what about you what do you.
8:49 am
think i might be magic yes magic then you can you show through your voting oh what a quaint trip. oh shit you dared 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 tank. too bad they tried very hard to shoot. them. but. his father wanted him to play soccer songs passion is to be in the ring. saying if i become professional i want to be a representative of my home country career. that's another
8:50 am
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 portal i don't like it because in my heart i always want to be korean 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 than that and that's that ah. my friends saying ah so my mother and father told me that it is the country where people live. since then i've realized that they many people here think this way.
8:51 am
in this tense political climate a number of far right groups are studying these divisions. with her. 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 hate speech was banned such groups from demonstrators in
8:52 am
public places so to get around the walls they use trucks. it's actually for the to follow the stocks because the protest minutes spots expats and then this problem. when they struggle to get closer to the embassy there and it seems to us that. i do. not. want. to let it go. there are people on the hill no not in the na-na na-na na-na na-na apps. and right wing activists a taking things even further. in late february tokyo's early morning quietly shattered when two men were arrested for allegedly farting multiple gunshots at north korea's de facto embassy. more and
8:53 am
more we made with one of the prime movers behind these right wing groups and. here you key says it is the leader of a new political possibly japan first he supports the prime minister a strong stance against north korea. you must know in a sense a husband we should start warn him of medium and that's my view says the warning about when war starts north korea will be destroyed and just got out of what it was and when there is no nation with the north korean schools here will be shut down. admits that he has organized a number of demonstrations against koreans he defends 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
8:54 am
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 wish is 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 but aren't. there normal activities. 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 hate speech i don't want to answer a limo would have gotten i don't have let me just explain i don't know you are 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
8:55 am
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 we're the worst that's it i. don't want to have the. hate speech laws are a positive step for a country the tory asli caught on immigration. did you feel the high spirits was happy stronger well in theory there is room for those laws to be strengthened about this challenge is going to be something that is not going our way we have to live with it. while others may
8:56 am
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 other event do you think you have the skills to be. a i'm not confident. but i'll do my best. when the competition begins with me until he's on the back. of
8:57 am
this is really going to say that it was a. problem i see. soon it's a song to contest three rounds. he's slow to start and the power lines more times. than it was ever. for. the one. thing i have. that. i get is the bad continues writes back attacking in short good. but it's not enough i.
8:58 am
mean they want their next day i'm ok taxes i didn't do well. i was so nervous my feet couldn't move and i got punched by the owner and. this is something i need to work on constantly. when the contest there is no animosity the to take stop trying to get. my philosophy is in the ring it doesn't matter who the opponent is you pull countries out of the ring i'm building friendship to you can write this. song. is about more than chasing the blue the victory. sports out or stay as a result of a true sport i like to tell them we are not bad people so we are not hostile.
8:59 am
and everyone should get along. and i would like to erase the bad image of north korea. and if i win i can show everyone. that i did it as a career and. that's how i feel. as poverty and desperation sweep across ruhi just settlements women and girls are being bought and sold and given away you refuse camps one used to best the gates yet another dark sign of the crisis at this time on al-jazeera. and sometimes for the really looking into the hearts and the souls of those directly involved in
9:00 am
offense taking place very good at telling all sides of the story from the political elite to those people who've been affected you really get to know what's happening on the ground that's very important for me as a generation past like and i often feel that my continent is misrepresented and we've changed that your story is important to us it doesn't matter where you come from. a lot hasn't in doha the top stories on al-jazeera the u.s. has accused russia of killing civilians in syria's eastern ghouta it says it carried out twenty bombings a day last month it is the strongest u.s. accusation to date of russia's role in the government offensive on the rebel held area syrian president bashar as said.
