Establishing Territorial rights as soon as possible

The following sentences are quoted from the Website of the Shimane prefectural government.

The Lee Line Declaration
On January 18th 1952, President Lee Seung-man of South Korea declared unilateral ocean rights (the Lee Line Declaration) and announced that Takeshima was included within the Lee Line.

Thereafter, several developments led to increased tension between Japan and South Korea, including both countries continuing to claim territorial rights, the dispatch of inspection teams, and the South Koreans firing on Japanese monitoring ships. In April 1960, the twelve year Lee Administration came to an end and discussions surrounding the conflict over Takeshima gradually progressed.

The Signing of the Japan-South Korea Basic Treaty
It was previously thought that the dispute would be resolved with the signing of the Japan-South Korea Basic Treaty on June 22, 1965. However, the issue of Takeshima was recognized as an area of dispute.

Territorial Water Zone Implemented by South Korea
On April 30th 1978, South Korea implemented a 12-mile territorial water zone, banning Japanese fishing boats from entering.

The Present State of Takeshima
South Korea currently has a lighthouse, watchtower and military troops stationed on Takeshima, and security personnel continue their illegal occupation. This situation makes it impossible for Japan to lay claim to its rights. Japan has a fundamental policy to resolve the issue through peaceful means and continues to negotiate all available routes, however, unfortunately there is still no resolution to the problem.


Given this situation, it is necessary for each Japanese citizen to understand these issues and rally support for a just resolution in order to establish territorial rights as quickly as possible and secure the safety of the fishing industry.

About Takeshima 

The following sentences are quoted from the Website of the Shimane prefectural government.

Takeshima is part of Okinoshima Town, Oki-gun, Shimane Prefecture, and is located approximately 157km northwest of the Oki Islands at N 37°14", E 131°52'. It has two main islands as well as several rocky atolls. It occupies a total land area of 230,967 square meters, which is approximately five times the size of Tokyo Dome, an entertainment arena. The islands are poor in fresh water resources and therefore not suitable for habitation. However, the warm Tsushima Current from the south meets the cold Liman Current from the north around the islands, making the area rich in fish and algae.

In the present age of 200-mile exclusive economic zones, the area surrounding Takeshima is of extreme value, not only to Shimane Prefecture but also the entire country for its potential contribution to the fishing industry and access to marine resources.
