Sunday's test is seen as a show of force against US President Donald Trump and came as he was meeting Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe.
After his brief press conference to address the North Korea missile launch, Trump stopped by a wedding.
North Korea said it had fired off a new medium-to-long-range ballistic missile Sunday despite resolutions by the United Nation's prohibiting such tests and the totalitarian regime's continued advancement of weapons and nuclear materials.
"I just want everybody to understand and fully know that the United States of America stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100 percent".
The North Korean missile test, and the joint response Trump and Abe subsequently issued, disrupted an evening Trump had planned to spend wining and dining Abe and his wife at the sprawling tropical estate.
"North Korea's weapons programs represent a clear, grave threat to USA national security".
At first the missile was thought to be a modified intermediate-range Musudan, which the North has been testing with little success over the past year.

North Korea watchers reported late in January the North Korean military had loaded missiles aboard two mobile launchers, a sign that test-firings could be imminent.
The missile was ejected out of the canister via cold launch before rocket ignition after the missile was clear of the TEL. Analysts who have studied the footage and imagery of the latest test say that the Pukguksong-2 is solid fueled like its sub-launched predecessor and noted changes to the shape of the warhead/reentry vehicle, with KCNA claiming it is capable of evading interception, without providing specifics.
The ROK foreign ministry said the launch was a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions and a serious threat to peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and the global community.
North Korea claimed Sunday the anti-missile defense system THAAD and South Korea's "Kill Chain" strategy to destroy and detect missiles will not defend against its projectiles.
"It's very similar to what they've launched from their submarines in the past", he said.
