Under Japanese law drones are not allowed to be flown over key facilities such as the prime minister’s office and the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.

However, drones are not restricted from flying above the 80 US military facilities located across Japan.

In a move to protect the 50,000 US troops based there, Japan’s defence ministry has proposed restricting the use of drones above these facilities.

If regulation is not introduced, drones could be used to carry out devastating terror attacks on US military bases, a senior defence ministry official said.

“It’s the Japanese government’s responsibility to ensure the safety of the US military,” the source said.

“We must consider necessary steps [to address the problem].”

North Korea – located 1,043 km away from Japan – has around 300 attack drones at its disposal, according to United Nations estimates.

Regime defectors have claimed the communist nation has more than 400 drones capable of carrying biological and chemical weapons.

North Korean defector Jinmyeong Han, who fled Kim Jong-un’s totalitarian state in 2015, said the drones are being kept underground to avoid foreign detection.

“My guess is that North Korea has 300 to 400 drones,” he said.

As tensions between the US and North Korea reach fever pitch, admiral Harry Harris, head of the US Pacific Command, has called for drones to be regulated.

Harris urged Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera to restrict drone usage over US military bases during a meeting in Tokyo in November.
