Maritime Security & North Korea Lecture and Lunch (Yokohama)

July 9, 2017 , 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

This joint Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies-JUMP event began with an English-language guided tour of the Japan Coast Guard Museum in Yokohama followed by a presentation by Professor Narushige Michishita on North Korea and its threat to Japan, and lunch. 

In addition to general information about the Japan Coast Guard, the Japan Coast Guard Museum features the hulk of a North Korean spy boat that was sunk by the Japan Coast Guard in December 2001 during an event that has been dubbed “The Battle of Amami-Oshima.” After the tour, attendees went to Bashimichi Taproom, where Professor Narushige Michishita, an expert on Korea, Japan and security issues, discussed the maritime dynamics of the North Korean threat. Following the talk was a social lunch featuring fantastic American-style barbeque on the Taproom’s third floor veranda. 


Professor Narushiga Michishita, Director of the Security and International Studies Program, Director of the Strategic Studies Program, and Director of the Maritime Safety and Security Policy Program at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies.
