In Japan, discrimination against the Korean minority who live in Japan since the colonial period is rampant. One can easily find abusive comments on Internet and some go as far as to threaten school children.
Kyoto Korean Primary School 1 does not have a school field and is using a park next to it for sports and assemblies.
The right wing activists accuse the school claimingly on behalf of the neigbourhood and make protests by removing the speaker/platform and giving strong verbal insults.

Actually this is not true, even in 2009 when this post was posted. I am a Korean American living in Japan so from personal experience Japanese had been kind with me. Japanese and Koreans get along fine. Sure you get the ignorant hating people but they are few in number, but most people either don't care or they're interested in each other's countries. Have you not been to Japan and caught the K-pop wave? In Korea, lots of Japanese tourists go there too. Sounds like you haven't experienced the real S.Korea/Japan and such discrimination is more common online, by rumors outside Japan/Korea, and with older Korean generation or right-wing nuts in Japan. Don't spread this nonsense on the web, please. No the discrimination isn't "rampant"and you're just posting stuff by the crazy hating Japanese minorities.
