The fact that many of the detainees held political sympathies with North Korea made the situation tense and led to their separation from those loyal to South Korea. As Morris-Suzuki writes, OmUra was a place in which three conflicts became concentrated and magnified: first, the conflict between the Japanese state and its Korean former colonial subjects; second, the conflict between Japan and the Republic of Korea (rok”South Korea); and third, the conflict between the two sides of the divided Korean peninsula”North and South (2010, 49). It is significant that such a multiplication and intensification of borders could underscore the myth of universalism established by the extraterritoriality enjoyed by the United States in Japan and the rise of area studies. But such conflicts are precisely what matters from the point of view of border as method. Whether they collapse continental tensions into confined and oppressive spaces like Omura, which remained Japan’s largest detention center until 2008, or range across the globe like Du Bois’s hemispheric visions of political resistance is less important than their capacity to generate geographies-in-the-making.
