Everyday racism: Your stories
Neo-Nazi in Japan
On 15h of August 2018, Japan marks its 68th anniversary of the end of the WW2 day.
I visited Yasukuni Shrine, where the fallen Japanese soldiers are being enshrined and often leads the controversial dispute by Korea and China.
My purpose of the visit was not to mourn, but to research how many civic organizations are doing their actives.
Some are not related to the event, while others are very related to.
But, I did not expect to see, even did not think that they are exist, some men having on military uniform with embroidery of the Japanese flag and Haukenkreuz, obviously Neo-Nazi.
Such extremest, xenophobia and hate-speech are getting remarkable recently, in the connection with the escalating conflict between Korea and China.
