This protest by left-behind parents in Tokyo shortly before Christmas last year shows that the Japanese child abduction problem impacts not just foreigners and not just fathers, but even Japanese mothers. ┬áThe “Santa Claus” in this video is Children’s Rights Council of Japan co-founder, David Brian Thomas.

Many thanks to Steve Christie for producing this video and to Ayumi Temlock for organizing the protest in Tokyo.
