"Japanese police arrived to arrest the man about 10 minutes later. However, as the police were escorting him away from the Tokyo shrine, a group of 5-6 Japanese men, said to be right-wing extremists, approached him and began punching him in the face and kicking his legs while yelling racist remarks"
The guy should have done the protest outside of the shrine property, but the police allowing this violence and not arresting those right wingers is far bigger problem.
By the way, it probably was one of those moments when the nature of the subject of worship being proven by its worshippers... that must have been how the Empire was.

Korea has the right to turn it down. How the world sees their doing so, however, can be an issue.

hey chucky guy, if you have not noticed, China on Senkaku/Daiyou is exactly where Japan is on takeshima/Dokdo.
They could do this themselves, they are one of the S.C. and they even have the priviledge to deny the verdict if they do not like it. They don't do it because this kind of issues is not as big deal as these two countries think it is. They know it well. China's attitude is more mature than the two of us, at least its leaders are.

I blame your party for not having been sincere. Guess why Chinese and Koreans are so emotional about these islands.

Both sides believe to have hard evidences that they own those little silly rocks, and the problem is that both side think the other side is lying or being unreasonable. The fact that the issue has become this big between the two already is an embarrasement. Just get it done with it once and for all. Korea, go to ICJ and claim and prove that they have no dispute.
Those stupid little rocks manifested the nature of disrespect between these two nations. A TOTAL EMBARRASEMENT AND DISAPPOINTMENT for those who love both these two countries and who seek peace and mutual respect between the two!!
Bribes? Come on, look at the list of judges. If you can't believe them, you wouldn't be able to believe any court of justice small or big. Or does this mean the judges in Korea can be bribed? Come on you are better than that! In addition to that, the head of the UN is a Korean now, he won't allow that to happen. Japan is bringing the issue to court because they believe that they are confident about the evidences they have, then go present yours and crush Japan's confidence as you always wanted to. Believe in the system, UN has survived the test of time for some good reasons.
Japan, why can't you let these little rocks go? They are really small. Can't you be content with all those pretty islands nobody else is claiming ownership? Takeshima/Dokto are small pieces of worthless rocks and they ain't even green. So tiny that they are represented as dots on the map. Koreans are somehow emotionally attached to these two rocks because they have turned these into symbol of their defense against the Ghost of Empire which you have already reasonably forgotten for a long long time. In fact, it is all your fault because you consistently refused to treat their wound for more than half century. Now it is all costing you. For that, as a native citizen, I am so disappointed with you.

This summer day, air conditioning not running, window closed, for three hours? Oh yeah, of course unintentional. I am sure of that.

The problem is Japan doesn't really recognize this type of kidnapping as a crime.
