Koreans in Japan Reach Out in Friendship

In the early 1900s, Japan invaded and took possession of Korea. During the colonization period, thousands of Koreans were brought to Japan to work. These immigrants were denied citizenship and faced incredible discrimination. There are now hundreds of thousands of Koreans in Japan and they fight to maintain their heritage. The Korean International School just opened and it seeks to reach out to Japanese students as well as those from other nations in order to foster a spirit of internationalism. Students will be taught in Korean, Japanese and English.
