TERRIFIED Japanese residents fear North Korea may trigger a nuclear disaster more devastating than the Fukushima calamity by testing a hydrogen bomb.

Japan has been on high alert since North Korea fired two ballistic missiles over the northern island of Hokkaido on September 15.

The Hermit Kingdom conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test just weeks earlier on September 3.

North Korea has not carried out further ballistic missile or nuclear tests in recent weeks, marking an eerily quiet period for the secretive state.

But the silence has done nothing to allay the fears of residents living directly in the firing line of Kim Jong-un’s missile tests.

Kawamura, who lives in a seaside cottage in Erimo, said: “Now when I hear a loud sound, I look outside, I look out at the ocean.

“I feel anxious, like I never know when it will come again.”

For months Japanese authorities have been holding large scale emergency drills in preparation for North Korea testing a missile or nuclear bomb.

In the event of a missile launch, the government activates sirens and sends alerts to millions of mobile phones.

Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe has called the threat posed by Kim Jong-un’s regime a “national crisis” that only he can solve.

Abe has taken an aggressive approach to North Korea in the hope it will win him votes in Sunday’s snap election.

But his comments have done little to alleviate the helplessness felt by thousands of residents.

“When it’s launched, it could land here just moments later,” Kawamura said. “There’s nowhere to hide.”
