NHK reported that following a decision by the City of Ishigaki, Okinawa, last October to include the word “Senkaku” in the official names of the five islands of the Senkakus, including the island of Uotsurishima, the city has decided to install signs on each island indicating the new names. The network said that the city is planning to obtain approval from the GOJ to land on the islands to install the signs. An official of the Ishigaki City Hall reportedly said: “We would like to reiterate at home and abroad that the Senkaku Islands are an inherent part of the Japanese territory.”
