Japan also has other small islands, such as the Nampo-Shoto islands that extends from south of Tokyo all the way down to the Bonin Islands.
Oh! speaking of the Bonin Islands, this the southernmost set of the Nampo-Shoto, that extends *gasp* all the way down to the northern Mariana Islands.
The Bonin Island is part of the Ogasawara Island group, which includes the infamous Iwo Jima island where one of the Pacific WWII battles were fought.
Oh, and let's not forget the Ryuku Islands that rightfully belongs to the native Okinawans who lived there.
It's sad to see the Okinawan culture subside in recent years, due to Japanese influence, and constant discrimination.
And the Diaoyutai that's east of the main Okinawan island is illegally occupied by Japan, if they want to apply the same logic to Dokdo. It should be occupied by China.
Lastly, Dae-Ma Do, which is an island more near to S Corea and also can be seen off the Pusan coastline, is supposed to be a part of S Corea. I don't know how S Corea lost the battle to that island which is called "tsushima" in Japanese.
So why the hell does Japan want more small tiny islands when they already have TONS of small islands that's not even used by Japan (i.e. Nampo Shoto, Bonin Island, Diaoyutai)???
