Takeshima or Dokdo
What I'd like to focus on in this article is the apathic attitude of Japanese on this issue, which partly makes a contrast with that of Korean. First of all, Japanese citizens are not eager as well as government and mass media. Only one prefecture, Shimane, seems desperate, though. Some rightists including me or 2ch(message board) have been the opinion leader. The reason for the apathy surrounding almost entire Japanese is partly because this issue is barely described as a significant one in history textbooks, spending only several lines. Korean(zainichi)-polluted mass media would never agitate people. So, most of the Japanese got surprised to see the extraordinary reaction of Korean, who insanely cry out for their legitimacy. Asahi newspaper once said, "why don't we give it to them?", and this newspaper hasn't retracted the remark. Some of the readers got disgusted, but it's not far from a taboo.
On the other hand, South Korean people are very different; it's like the whole country moves forward without any exception.
Oi, look at the photo above. They teach chidlren as if it's must be an eternal truth no one can reverse.
I ran into a blog, written by lostseouls.com from England, writing an interesting experience, a conversation with a boy. He was asked by the boy if he's known Dokdo(Korean's name for the disputed island) issue. It's very funny. Let's see other pics I found:
Wow, that's .... Yikes!

Sorry if you like dogs as a target of love! Dog heads are aligned with name tags of pro-Japanese members. In South Korea, nothing else sounds scarier than someone points you as pro-Japanese. Gee, Korean really are different from us.
I'm obliged to show Japanese rightish aspect on Takeshima. Here's one of rare photos of Uyoku vans protesting against Korean about Takeshima. This Uyoku group, "Minzoku seinen doumei", turned out that a Korean (金Kim 教換Gyo-Whan) is the head. As I mentioned, many Uyoku are already taken over by Korean to become "fake Uyoku". But in this rare case, they seem to be still anti-Korean.
