"According to available information, no one can for me to refute the view," said Murata.
Murata said, Japan said Okinawa county "Senkaku Islands" (i.e. I Diaoyu Islands are Japanese territory), but Okinawa was not inherent territory of Japan, before is the Ryukyu Kingdom, later incorporated into japan. And the Ryukyu recorded history does not exist in the Japanese government said "the Senkaku islands".
Murata said, from the point of view of geographical condition and natural environment, the Diaoyu Island does not belong to Okinawa or the Ryukyu Islands, but has a close relationship with Chinese fishermen. He says, Diaoyu Island is located in the edge of the continental shelf. Okinawa fishermen there are boats, spanning 2000 meters deep in the Okinawa trough to fishing almost impossible. "However, in China's Fujian, Taiwan fishermen's opinion, there is a shallow, history often go fishing, now also often go to."

But the village did not immediately executed. "Because he knows, these islands and the relevant." The final hill county ordered to suspend the establishment of identity.
Japan's foreign ministry said on its official website, "since 1885, the Japanese government through the Okinawa county government and the way many of the Senkaku Islands investigation", but Murata think, Japan has never been investigated several times the so-called "". The field survey of Japan on the Diaoyu Islands are only at the end of 1894 10, investigation of Okinawa County staff within hours of the Diaoyu islands.
