The two faces of Japanese soccer fans, Japanese soccer fans who made headlines for cleaning up the stands at the stadium, but this time, I saw many articles saying they were embarrassed by the Rising Sun Flag.
Yesterday (27th) there was a match between Japan and Costa Rica in Group E 2nd match, and some soccer fans in Japan entered the stadium with the rising sun flag symbolizing militarism.
Some fans cheered by waving the Rising Sun Flag, while others hung the Rising Sun Flag on the stadium railings.
Fortunately, stadium safety personnel immediately mobilized and demolished the stadium, and in the process, there was a brief scuffle with Japanese fans.
Previously, after the match against Germany on the 23rd, Japanese soccer fans voluntarily collected and organized trash left in the stadium, receiving praise from overseas media, but this time, the article pointed out that they brought shame on themselves with a wrong perception of history.
