On Saturday, June 15th, Kawaijuku Uehonmachi School will hold a cultural lecture titled “Beyond the Timeless History – Excavation of Human Remains and the Journey of Young People” for junior high and high school students and their parents. The lecturer will be Yoshihiko Tonohira, a monk who presides over a Japan-Korea joint workshop in Fukagawa City, Hokkaido, which is working on excavating and returning the remains of Korean forced labor victims.
At the lecture, there was a screening of the documentary film “So Long Asleep,” which documents the workshop’s journey to return the remains of forced labor victims, as well as a screening of the documentary film “So Long Asleep,” which records the journey of the workshop to return the remains of forced labor victims. Mr. Tonohira will give a lecture. We will tell you how the young people who gathered for the workshop faced their past history and fostered friendships through their efforts.
Please use your media to introduce this project as an opportunity for junior high and high school students to become interested in history and the future through the efforts of Japanese and Korean youth. Interviews are also welcome.
[What is Kawaijuku Cultural Lecture?]
At Kawaijuku, we want to provide our students, who are going through an impressionable period, with an opportunity not only to study for entrance exams, but also to broaden their horizons and deepen their knowledge, so we hold a “Cultural Lecture” where they can listen to talks from people from various fields. We are implementing it. A total of six sessions are scheduled for fiscal 2024, and this will be the first.

Chief priest of Jodo Shinshu Honganji-ha Ichijoji Temple (Fukagawa City, Hokkaido). Since the 1970s, he has been working on excavating the remains of Korean victims of forced abduction and forced labor. In 1997, he presided over a Japan-Korea joint workshop on excavating human remains in Shumarinai with young people from Japan, South Korea, and residents of Japan. In 2015, the remains of 115 victims were returned to South Korea. Since then, we have been supporting East Asia joint workshops and promoting exchanges among young people from East Asia.
