Japan and China are continuing to exchange angry words over their competing claims to the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands, an uninhabited group of islands in the East China Sea.

The BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes visited the islands that are the focus of the tension, and found a growing wave of nationalism in Japan.

This segment aired on November 13, 2012.
