GOJ opens permanent exhibition in Tokyo of documents related to Senkakus and Takeshima

NHK reported that the GOJ has opened a permanent exhibition of documents related to the Senkaku Islands and Takeshima inside a facility located in Hibiya Park, Tokyo, in an effort to send the message at home and abroad that the islands are integral part of Japanese territory. During an opening ceremony, Minister of State for Okinawa and Northern Territories Affairs Esaki reportedly said: “Takeshima has been illegally occupied by South Korea for more than 60 years, and Chinese submarines have been spotted inside Japan’s contiguous zone near the Senkaku Islands. As the situation surrounding our territory is becoming severe, I believe that the exhibition will serve as a center for conveying a message about our territorial sovereignty. We hope to hold rotating displays and enhance the exhibition.” According to the network, the permanent exhibition includes copies of documents showing the Japanese cabinet endorsed a plan to incorporate the Senkaku Islands into Japanese territory in 1895 and a panel explaining how Takeshima was illegally occupied by South Korea.
