How far is America from North Korea?

Question: How far away is the west coast of America from North Korea?

Answers: The nearest areas of mainland America on the United States West Coast are around 5,000 miles from North Korea.

The far Western Coast of Alaska is about 3,000 miles from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang with Hawaii approximately 4,500 miles away.

The Korean peninsula became divided after the end of World War Two when the then Soviet Union began occupation of the countries north with the USA controlling the south.

War between the north and south broke out on June 25, 1950 and was ended over 3 years later with an armistice on July 27, 1953.

Despite the military conflict coming to an end, tensions between the north and south have remained extremely high ever since.
