Zainichi Tokken o Yurusanai Shimin no Kai(在日特権を許さない市民の会, 在特会, meaning Association of Citizens against the Special Privileges of the ZainichiWikipedia)is a Japanese far-right anti-Korean, anti-Chinese, anti-American, anti-Russian, anti-Australian, anti-communist, and neo-fascist organization and a hate group. Hate groups in similar positions include Britain's English Defense League, Germany's PEGIDA and Greece's Golden Dawn.

The Zaitokukai was founded in 2006 by a concerned citizen going by the pseudonym Makoto Sakurai who, after having seen a TV news report about a movement supporting premium-free pension rights for Zainichi Koreans, became convinced that foreigners, particularly Koreans, were being granted special privileges not afforded to native Japanese. They are not recognized as conservatives by mainstream Japanese conservatives. They are often called Neo-Nazi groups in and out of Japan.


Former member Dairyo Kawahigashi (川東大了) has stated his wish to retaliate with nuclear weapons against the United States as a means of revenge for the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Zaitokukai hates Koreans the most, but is essentially a group with strong exclusivity toward all races except for pure-blooded Japanese. They hate white people, too, and point to them and say, "Western savage (洋夷) go to your country!". Ironically, however, they like the West's alt-right. These are basically racialists.
