A study of the territorial dispute between Japan and Korea over Liancourt Rocks, a small cluster of barren, rocky islets in the Sea of Japan that Japanese call Takeshima and Koreans call Dokdo.
You are crazy. I can't understand why you are thinking like this
gwan Gang,Unfortunately, everybody on the earth except Korean think it is Korean who act crazy when it comes to Dokdo/Takeshima Issue.Thanks, GerryI didn't know he updated the contents!! It's excellent and synical, isn't it?
Kaneganese,The video makes a very good point in a very clever way. And I love the music.
Korean's appeasl for Dokdo in this video are the counterevidence Japanese aggression on Dokdo is escalating to the point the Koreans can't stay quiet. Who can trust Japanese claim on Dokdo considering Japanese past of territorial aggression on other countries? The biggest Japanese false claim is that Japan established the sovereignty on Dokdo in the late 17th century and incorporated Dokdo into Japanese land because it was ownerless in 1905. Who can believe this self-contradictory claim? Japanese incorporation on Dokdo in 1905 is far from the righteous procedure according to international law.As for the Japanese old map appeared in the video with a wording "Takeshima is Japan's territory.", it's an imitated map published in 1846, not an original one. "In the original "改正日本輿地路程全図" published in 1779, Dokdo is depicted outside of Japanese territory. Japanese government presents "改正日本輿地路程全図" of 1884 made after the death of the cartographer of "改正日本輿地路程全図(1779)" as the evidence Japan long recognized the existence of Dokdo, but its original map is also the evidence Japan didn't considered Dokdo as the Japanese land. 改正日本輿地路程全図(1779) 1 2 The stance of Korea on ICJ is that Korea has neither any reason to go to the ICJ . Why should Korea ask the 3rd parties to judge whether Korean land is Korean land or not? Going to ICJ itself is saying "Dokdo is not Korean land." I'm sure the Japanese government knows Korea would never go to ICJ. Japan's stubborn asking Korea to do what Korea will not do is simply morally wrong.Mr. Gang,I know how you are upset, but I suggest you stay cool whenever you meet this kind of distorted videos. There are lots of Japanese made You-tube videos with full of lies. This video is just one of them.
sloww,You are brainwashed by your own government. It is no use of jumping on Japanese careless maps without colouring, since there are Japanes maps which coloured both islands as Japanse territory. In fact, it is obvious that Nagakubo did considered both islands as Japanese territory.「亜細亜小東洋図」（長久保赤水)作製『唐土歴代州郡沿革地図』所収：天保６年（１８３５年）http://www.pref.shimane.lg.jp/soumu/web-takeshima/takeshima_photo/What Korea required to do is to present the old KOREAN maps with today's Takeshima, not presenting Japanese maps without/uncoloured Takeshima. Japan had officially incorporated it into territory in 1905, so the Japanese maps before that is hardly be a crucial evidencece on Korean side in the first place.

Kaneganese, I'm sick of Japanese shouting "You are brainwashed by your own government." Do es the Japanese government can brainwash her people? I just said the fact.The map 「亜細亜小東洋図」was published in 1835 and colored Ulleongdo and Dokdo as Japanese land. This map is just inaccurate. Historically, Ulleongdo has never been a Japanese land. In 1669, the Japanese government officially prohibited the Japanese to travel to Ulleongdo because it was Korean land. And in 1837, the Japanese government reconfirmed Ulleongdo was not Japanese land. Maybe, 「亜細亜小東洋図」 reflects the mapmaker's longing for Ulleongdo and Dokdo as Japanese land, but this map has a serious flaw against the historical fact.There is an evidence Nagakubo Sekisui(長久保赤水) didn't consider both islands as Japanese territory. In his map "改正日本輿地路程全図" of 1779, he wrote the phrase "見高麗猶雲州望隠州((Viewing Koryo (Korea) is the same as viewing Onshu (Oki island) from Unshu)" from the book "隠州視聴合記" next to Ulleongdo and Dokdo. "隠州視聴合記" is the first Japanese book excluded Ulleongdo and Dokdo as Japanese land. He clearly showed he didn't consider Ulleongdo and Dokdo as Japanese land by adding this phrase.By the way, I have a question. 長久保赤水 died in 1801, but this map was published in 1835. Why is that so?
why don't Korea make this kind of video?
sloww,I have already heard almost all of your claim many times, on and on, so that's the reason I think you are brainwashed and I'm sick of it, too. If you want to claim you are not, then why don't you go museum, library or archive to bring the first hand historical evidence, not others' logic/url. There were clever Korean who eager to finding historical resourses before. I really respect and miss him. In 1696, voyage to Ulleungdo alone, not Takeshima, was banned, but it was only conveyed to Tottori and Tsushima. Nagakubo reside in Mito, then Edo, so it is natural that he didn't know about the ban and considered both islands are Japanese territory from the description of "隠州視聴合記" . This version of 「亜細亜小東洋図」 was published before 1837, the year when Bakufu prohibited voyage to Ulleungdo, but didn't mention anything about Matsushima, today's Takeshima. In international law, this fact is very important.Many Japanese in Edo considered "隠州視聴合記" didn't exclude both islands from Japanese territory. 「亜細亜小東洋図」 and other maps painted Takeshima and Matsushima as Japanese territory explains it.Q."By the way, I have a question. 長久保赤水 died in 1801, but this map was published in 1835. Why is that so? "→A. Google it. Very easy.
From the 1970s to late years, the Korean government taught to students through history textbook, ・Japanese Government General of Korea confiscated 40% of farmland of the whole country from a farmer in the times when Japan governed Korea.・Japanese Government General of Korea took half of rice produced in Korea and sent it to Japan.・The Japanese Government took 6,500,000 Koreans and drove them hard like a slave without paying the wage.But all these were lies. This is an excellent brainwashing act. Will the brainwashing act of Korea be really only these?
When modernized country talked their history as “social science”, they give importance to fact based social statistics. Even though they are sometimes estimated one, we could argue the accuracy or method of estimations, and these arguments would be progressing as objective science.So, social statistics would cultivate some comparable sense of history, not as ideology but as social science.Of course, some countries have not had enough historical statistics, like population, taxing, average life span, income, or anything, which helped to imagine how their countries were. Basically from ancient history to now, good regimes have remained many statistics and evidences, because they were vitally important for adequate governing. And naturally they could be tolerable by eyes of future citizens and historians. On the one hand, relentless, irrational, brutal regimes have almost never remained these statistics, but they ignored and forged them. (We can see this in Russia before 90’s, China before 60’s, or North Korea in now, or other corrupt developing countries forever)By the way, I know some Korean scholars who are talking how Korean had been governed by Japan in early 20th century from the viewpoint of social statistics. They are basically economists, or economic historians.http://yeoksa.blog.fc2.com/Other important social static is: (some was come from the study of Harvard professor Carter J. Eckert) Korean population at 1753, it was estimated 73 million.It was estimated 75 million at 1850.It was 98 million at 1906.It was 131 million at 1910.It was 240 million at 1942.They are of course one side of history; but when we argue Japan’s government in Korea, it seems to be desirable that the argument is based also on social statistics, to deepen mutual understanding.
Kaneganese,How do you know if I'm going to the library or museum? Of course, I can't either go to the museum in Japan or reading Japanee documents. I'm well aware of what your logic is in this blog and they are noting but the ordinary pro-Japanese claims. Nothing new. And I also know how you react when you are bothered by Korean claims. If you didn't like my claims, why didn't you refute me then? You don't need to attack me in a such a mean way in proving you are right. The evidence Nagakubo didn't consider Ulleongdo and Dokdo as Japanese territory is as follows:1. He did consider Ulleongdo and Dokdo as Koeran land by uncloloring differently from Oki Island and same as Korea. It's so simple fact can't be denied. In the map of 1846, Ulloengdo and Dokdo colored same as Oki Island. Japanese "Web Takeshima Research Center" wrote about it that "松島竹島は隠岐と同じ黄色に彩色されている。（朝鮮半島は茶色)". It can be translated "Takehsima(Ulleongdo) and Matsushima(Dokdo) are colored same as Oki Island.(Mainland Korea is uncolored.)" Coloring in the maps is important. If Nagakubo considered those two islands as Japanese land, he must have colored them same as Oki Island in his map of 1779. 2. Nakagubo drew Ulleongdo and Dokdo outside the grid of Japan’s longitudinal and latitudinal lines in his map of 1779, which mean he didn't think those two islands were within Japanese territory. On the other hand, there are longitude and latitude lines around Ulleongdo and Dokdo in the map of 1846 showing they are within Japanese territory. 3. Nakagubo reconfirmed his perception on Ulleongdo and Dokdo as Korean lang by adding the phrase from "隠州視聴合記". "隠州視聴合記" wrote "Viewing Koryo (Korea) is the same as viewing Onshu (Oki island) from Unshu) from Unshu (Izumo)".You just said Nagakubo didn't know Edo Bakuhu's voyage ban to Ulleongdo because he was from Mito, not from Tottori and many Japanese in Edo considered "隠州視聴合記" didn't exclude both islands from Japanese territory. Your assumption is not persuasive. It's highly unlikely the famous Japanese mapmaker didn't know Edo Bakuhu's voyage ban to Ulleongdo and misinterpret the important document.In short, Nagakubo excluded Ulleogndo and Dokdo as Japanese land by not coloring same as Oki Island and by not locating them within the grid of Japan’s longitudinal and latitudinal lines in his map of 1779.改正日本輿地路程全図(1779) 改正日本輿地路程全図(1846)I don't know how to find why 「亜細亜小東洋図」 was published 34 years after his death in google. Please tell me if you know. I'm very curious about it. But it's ok if you don't want to tell me.
sloww,You totally misuderstand. What you need to do is not go to find Japanese document, but KOREAN. And if you don't understand why this "version" of map was published after he died, then it means you don't have basic knowledge of the map.Have you even seen the map 「改正日本輿地路程全図」? If you did, you understand the un-colouring of the map of the remote islands in the map doesn't mean they are excluded from Japan. Okinoshima and Kuchinoerabu, Ezo in the first version, and Hachijojima Okinoshima, Kuchinoerabu and Ezo in the second version are not coloured, respectively. I've already wrote this several times...

小嶋日向守,I looked at the maps you suggested.AD1741 大日本国全図 : It's just a black and white map and Ulleongdo and Dokdo are outside the grid of Japan’s longitudinal and latitudinal lines around Japan.

Kaneganese ,I know about the Koeran documents as well as you do. Don't concern about me.You said " if you don't understand why this "version" of map was published after he died, then it means you don't have basic knowledge of the map."Why don't you just give the reason to me who don't have the basic knowledge of the map? Isn't this blog the place for finding new knowledge? But please don't mind if you don't want.You asked "Have you even seen the map 「改正日本輿地路程全図」?". Do you think I'm talking about that map without looking at it? Of course, I didn't look at the original one.You wrote "...the un-colouring of the map of the remote islands in the map doesn't mean they are excluded from Japan. Okinoshima and Kuchinoerabu, Ezo in the first version, and Hachijojima Okinoshima, Kuchinoerabu and Ezo in the second version are not coloured, respectively.". I think it's you who don't understand the map. How can you compare Ulleongdo and Dokdo with those islands? I don't what those islands are, but I'm sure they must be very small and remote islands of Japan which the mapmaker probably didn't care at all. But Ulloengdo and Dokdo are different from those to Japan. How many years the Japanese fishermen illegally did fishing activites in those islands? And if Nakagubo treated Ulleongdo and Dokdo like the mentioned other islands, he didn't write the phrase from ""隠州視聴合記".
sloww,Thank you so much for telling me you noticed Pusan area in their maps.Every map mentioned voyage route for 和館 in Pusan via Tsushima. 和館 was the Japanese Embassy in Korea at that time.Therefore only Pusan area was described, Korean land nevertheless.AD 1783大日本国図 赤水翁輿地圖 by Nagakubo Sekisui 天明三年http://bunka.main.jp/blog2/diary.cgi?mode=img&file=31-2.jpg&width=283&height=421&size=62Takeshima and Matsushima shown as Japan's territory obviously in these maps.

テレビニュースの教科書のリャンコ島の画像は完全に消されていましたね。皆様 1667年に著された隠州視聴合紀の「此二嶋無人之地 見高麗如自雲州望隠州 然則日本乾地以 此州為限矣」の解釈は、正常な日本人なら、日本西北端の地は、当時竹島と呼ばれた現在の鬱陵島を指していると読み取りますよね。仮に、この「州」を島と解釈せずに、州と解釈したとしても、前後の文脈から、文章の意味はこの場合、竹島・松島を隠岐の国に含めた広い意味での隠岐州と考えて隠州視聴合紀の著者は語っていると誰にも理解できるはずです。 もし池内敏氏のトンデモ解釈のように、隠岐の島前と島後だけに限定して、それを日本の西北端だと考えていたとしたら、隠州視聴合紀の記述は、最初から、隠岐の西にある二つの島は朝鮮領の島であると素直に書くはずですよね。 これに関しまして、このブログの常連メンバーによって先頃、明らかになった二つのことがその傍証となると思います。最近このブログを訪問された方のために、ご紹介します。 一つは、昨年11月に発見され話題となった申徳函という朝鮮の儒者が1697年に書いた文章です。この文章によって、当時の朝鮮知識人の共通理解として、「遠く険しい絶海の鬱陵島が、日本に通ずる境界の地である」ということが判明しています。鬱陵島に達するだけでも命懸けでその先に島があるとか、それ(現在の竹島)を朝鮮領土であるなどとは全く考えていないことが明らかでした。王若曰。欝陵島、遥在東海中。輿地勝覧、屬之江原道。雖云我國地、而水路険遠、人烟不通。祖宗朝、刷還逃民、遂虚其地矣。近来、倭人貪其篠蕩・鰒魚之利。假名竹島、指為厥土、請禁我民越境漁採。屡遣近侍、暁諭竹欝之虚實、境界之有別。而終無聴順之意、頗有生梗之端。(中略)臣伏讀聖策曰、「欝陵島止、虚其地矣。」臣圭復再三隕越于下。臣窃伏推、環海立国、畫野分界。而退彼欝島、亦載版籍、地属関東。路通日本、漲海連天、人烟不接。則粤自祖宗、視同異域、移其民於邦内、置此地於度外者、豈非勢有所不能也。(中略)臣伏讀聖策曰、「近来倭人止、「萬全之良策」歟。」臣圭復再三隕越于下。島在絶海、物自今古。草木長焉、魚龞養焉。厥木巨竹、其魚大鰒。惟彼倭人、推利是貪。垂涎我物産、生心我土地。假彼「竹島之名」、眩我「欝陵之實」。隂逞甞試之計、請禁漁採之民。其心巧矣。其言肆矣。 而以殿下緩遠之徳、行先王待夷之道。不較曲直、明示暁諭、近侍御合、冠蓋織路。而卞其虚實、不啻日中之難、決定我境界、未免海外之無憑。魷心不悛、終無聴合之意、壑慾無厭、惟肆貪得之心。頗有不遜之状、而亦多生梗之端。 二つめは、隠州視聴合紀の著者たちから約40年ほど後に、竹島(鬱陵島)を訪れた日本人の証言で、実によく似た洞察をした記録が残っています。それは、金森建策の文鳳堂雑纂に収められた竹島図説に出ていました。「隠岐國松島ノ西島(松島ノ一小屬ナリ島土俗呼テ次島ト做ス)ヨリ海上道規凡四十里許リ北方ニ一島アリ名テ竹島ト曰フ 此ノ島日本ニ接シ朝鮮 (竹島ヨリ朝鮮ヘ海上道規四十里許ト云此說ハ享保九年昔屢島セル一老叟ニ詰問セラレト其答伯州會見郡濱野目三柳村ヨリ隱岐ノ後島ヘ三十五六里アリ是遠見ノ考ヲ以テ竹島ヨリ朝鮮山ヲ見ハ少ク遠ク見エルハ凡四十里許カト云リ」というものです。投稿者の皆様におかれましては、是非この二つの記録も御参考に願います。
竹島圖説の引用文で肝心な所に遺漏がありました。「この島(鬱陵島のこと)、日本に接し、朝鮮に隣し、」とあります。原文は以下の通りです。隠岐國松島ノ西島(松島ノ一小屬島ナリ。土俗呼テ次島(ツギノシマ)ト做ス)ヨリ、海上道䂓(ミチノリ) 凡ソ四十里許リ北方ニ一島アリ。名テ竹島ト曰フ。此ノ島、日本ニ接シ、朝鮮ニ隣シ、地形三角ニシテ、周囲凡ソ十五里許産物尤モ多キ一奇島ナリ。 竹島ヨリ朝鮮ヘ、海上道規四十里許ト云。此說ハ、享保九年、昔、屡、渡島セル一老叟ニ詰問セラレシトキ、其答ニ、伯州会見郡濱野目三柳村ヨリ、隱岐ノ後島ヘ三十五六里アリ。是遠見ノ考ヲ以テ、竹島ヨリ朝鮮山ヲ見ハ、少ク遠ク見ユレハ、凡四十里許カト云リ。一方、申徳函の文章で肝心な所は、竹島が境界争いの地となっているという現状分析に加えて、朝鮮から竹島(鬱陵島)までは、「水路険遠、人烟不通」また「漲海連天、人烟不接」と述べて、人はおろか、煙さえ通じない、接することができないと言っています。接することが出来ないというのは、達しない、届かないという意味になります。申徳函は、続けてこうも言っています。「我軍不習操舟、未諳水路、行有疾疫・飄沒之憂。守有浮寄・孤懸之患。敵来而無「可援之勢」、事急、而無「可歸之路」矣。誠用此計、必敗殿下之事矣。」と言っています。つまり、鬱陵島への航路さえ、諳(そら)んじることができない状態だということです。「接」という文字について補足します。鬱陵島に辿り着くことさえ困難な朝鮮に対して、竹島は日本に接するという言い方をしているのですから、日本に達して届いているというわけです。これは、たとえば、「第一生命ビルは、GHQに接収された」というような使い方の「接」と考えることが出来ると思います。
Kumabear,You wrote " islands which Koreans circled with a red pen are Argonaut and Dagelet. Takeshima(Dokdo) on the map was marked out with the red they drew.I don't know whether they did it on purpose or not."Can you explain why those two islands in the red circle are argonaut and Dagelet? And do you know where Dokdo is?The two islands in the circle are Ulleongdo and Dokdo which are drawn as Korean land.
Mr.slowwHere's the original maphttp://archive.wul.waseda.ac.jp/kosho/ru02/ru02_00002/ru02_00002_0001/ru02_00002_0001_p0028.jpgAnd whole of the textbookhttp://archive.wul.waseda.ac.jp/kosho/ru02/ru02_00002/ru02_00002_0001/ru02_00002_0001.pdfCan you see a tiny dot between Oki islands and two islands circled with red? It's Takeshima(Dokdo). This map was made before 1900, so there was still confusion on the maps in Japan. This is one of typical 19c's maps of Japan.
Mr.Kumabear,OK, I understood.
http://www.uproda.net/down/uproda503437.pngKorean TV did it on purpose.
Hi,I have some points which don't make sense and I don't know the islet is Korean or Japanese, so I'd like to ask questions. 1. As for the 隠州視聴合紀, I cannot understand this is why 州 can be interpreted as an island. If this were an island, the author should have written as 島. "Oki can be seen from the Izumo (so Oki is Japanese territory)" and "Korea can be seen from the island ( so the island is Korean territory)". I don't know which island is indicated but this interpretation seems natural. I want to ask about the interpretation. 2.I don't know if Korean gov.declared the sovereignty over the island before 1905, the time Shimane prefecture clearly declared. Even if Korean gov. did before,is this effective? And according to what treaty or law? (besides, the annex was illegal? I don't know.)3.Though SF treaty didn't refer to over the islet (Am I wrong?), Japan lose the sovereignty according to the SCAPIN 677. So, it seemed the islet was no one's.Why can Japanese gov. advocate the sovereignty? I am very glad if someone would answer.
Mr.PingwieHere is my interpretation.1.The author recognized Takeshima and Matsushima belonged to Onshu. That's why he wrote "this shu 此州" when referring to Takeshima in the preceding sentence(見高麗如雲州望隠州). In this book, every island called without the name of Shu are all Onshu's.>>"Oki can be seen from the Izumo (so Oki is Japanese territory)" and "Korea can be seen from the island ( so the island is Korean territory)".>>It can be read like this, too. But I read "No other island which seems to be Japanese territory or uninhabited can be found between Ulleungdo and Korea, so we determine Ulleungdo is the northwesternmost territory of Japan".2.Korea never declared her sovereignty over Dokdo. If she did before 1905, Dokdo legally became Korean territory in accordance with the rules of occupation(sovereignty goes to the country who found ownerless island first) of international law. Notification is not legally necessary. Although the exercise of administration or jurisdiction is required to prove effective control, in the case of uninhabited islands like Takeshima, the usage becomes the biggest factor of effective control. 3.SCAPIN677 was just a draft. Its paragraph 6 says "Nothing in this directive shall be construed as an indication of Allied policy relating to the ultimate determination of the minor islands referred to in Article 8 of the Potsdam Declaration." No country signed this draft.
Mr.Kumabear,I was almost misled by your picture.This is the picture you should watch. 新撰地誌's map There's no island looking like Dokdo. It's just a dot. You can see similar dots around.In this map, the two islands are Ulleongdo and Dokdo and they are included as Korean land.To understand why Ulleongdo is in the postion of Argonaut, please go here. You can get some help why the Japanese drew Ulloengdo and Dokdo in the inaccurate positions in 1880s.
Mr. Kumabear Thank you for your answer. I am glad to get an answer. If possible, I want an answer from opposite side as well.Best,
Pingwie wrote:1. As for the 隠州視聴合紀, I cannot understand this is why 州 can be interpreted as an island. If this were an island, the author should have written as 島. "Oki can be seen from the Izumo (so Oki is Japanese territory)" and "Korea can be seen from the island ( so the island is Korean territory)". I don't know which island is indicated but this interpretation seems natural. I want to ask about the interpretation.The 1667 Onshu Shico Goki (隠州視聴合記) was describing the Country of Oki by giving its boundaries relative to other Japanese territory. By listing Matsushima (Liancourt Rocks) and Takeshima (Ulleungdo) the writer believed those two islands to be part of not only Japanese territory but also part of Oki, as outlying islands. The 州 in the document was referring to Oki, not to Matsushima or Takeshima, which the writer believed to be outlying islands of Oki.The Japanese did not travel beyond Takeshima (Ulleungdo), so the writer did not know the exact distance from Takeshima to Korea, so he described the distance by saying that it was close enough to be seen in the distance from Takeshima. To make it clearer, he compared it to looking at Oki Island from Unshu, the distance of which the Japanese did know. Because Korea was beyond Takeshima and because Takeshima was considered to be part of Oki Country, the writer believed Oki Country to be the northwest boundary of Japan.Here is the translation:(From Oki) If you go northwest for two days, you reach Matsushima (Liancourt Rocks), and one day farther is Takeshima(Ulleungdo), which is commonly called Iso-Takeshima, with much bamboo, fish, and sea lions. These two islands are uninhabited. Because looking at Koryo is like looking at Onshu (Oki Island) from Unshu (a place east of Shimane Prefecture), this place (Oki) is considered the northwest boundary of Japan.戌亥間行フ二日一有松嶋 又一日程有竹嶋 （俗言磯竹嶋多竹魚海鹿） 此二嶋無人之地 見高麗如自雲州望隠州 然則日本乾地以 此州為限矣We know Japan considered the two islands to be part of Japanese territory because Japan had a fight with Korea over ownership of Takeshima in the 1690s. We also know the the islands were considered Japanese territory becasuse they were unaffected by the 1635 Sakoku Edict, which banned trade and travel outside Japanese borders. LINK
As for the map in Japanese old textbook, another textbook seems to be preserved in korean museum.http://cfile215.uf.daum.net/image/111A5A4D503D593517D00BI cannot say which is true. And I do not think that either side put or erased on purpose. It might be due to printer or preservation. For example, there is a black dot in the sea under the 満州 in korean one. Such a dot would be printed or not printed. And the resolution is also a matter. The dot may be erased by shrinking the size. Though, I do not think Korean side did it on purpose. http://pds.joinsmsn.com/news/component/htmlphoto_mmdata/201208/29/htm_201208292354620102011.jpgFor me, this picture is sort of weird. This enlarged picture's contrast seems to be emphasized ( and/or differentiated edge detection? ). This degrades the data. Though social study or politics is not my major.Anyway, did not Japanese gov. consider the island as japanese territory? Even if the japanese one is right, the island was located on not Korea oder Japan.
Mr. Gerry BeversThank you for the answer. It helps me a lot.Best,
slowwLook at the map below and compare two islands' locations with 新撰地誌's map. https://sites.google.com/site/takeshimaliancourt/Home/Korean-media-black-propaganda/20120828There's nothing strange or wrong with it as a map made in late 19c. Sometimes Takeshima(Dokdo) was omitted, sometimes three islands(Argonaut, Dagelet, and Liancourt rocks) were drawn. This map is latter.Besides, how is this map related to sovereignty? I can't see any borderlines of territory.
Pingwie,I'd like to give my answer to your question about "隠州視聴合紀".In Japan, "州" refers to both province and island. Korea and Japanese scholars differently interpreted what "此州(this province)" indicates in the last sentence. But in 2001, it was revealed by a Japanese scholar that "州“ in the last sentence refers to 'province' According to his thesis, "州" was used 66 times in the whole text of "隠州視聴合紀" and 65 words of "州" was used as the meaning of province. Besides, when the writer mentions same island again later by combing with the "此", he used the word "此島(this island)" not "此州(this province)" Thus, "此州" in the last sentence is proved to indicate the province "Oki lsland." Ulleongdo(Takeshima) and Dokdo(Matsushima) can't be called as the province because they are uninhabited islands. As you implied, interpreting "此州" as Ulleongdo(Takeshima then) and Dokdo(Matsushima then) is very unnatural.
Pingwie,This is my answer to your question 2.In the end of 19th century, the Japanese encroachment and illegal logging in Ulleongdo had become a serious problem. So the Korean government decided to abandon the vacant island policy and develop and resettle the Ulleungdo area. As a result, the Korea promulgated Korean Ordinance No 41. on October 25 1900 which renamed Ulleungdo Uldo and upgraded the office to the County and put Ulleungdo, Jukdo and Seokdo under the jurisdiction of the Uldo County. Jukdo is a small island 2.2km off the Ulleongdo's east coast. Seokdo is the new name of Dokdo. Korean Ordinance No.41(1900)In 1905, the Japan incorporated Dokdo into Japanese land saying there was no traces of occupation by any other countries. Actually Japan has the evidence of traces of Dokdo as Korean land such as documents and maps. The two most decisive examples are 朝鮮国交際始末内探書(1870) and 太政官指令(1877) How Takeshima & Matsushima Became Part of Joseon(朝鮮国交際始末内探書)Japan has nothing to do with Takehsima and another island.(太政官指令)Japanese government didn't notify Korean government of its incorporation of Dokdo in 1905 and didn't make it public enough. Japan's way of “announcing” Japan’s incorporation of Liancourt Rocks as part of Oki County was tiny ad in the local newspaper. How could Korea know about Japanese incorporation of Dokdo? Image of local San-in Newspaper announcing Japan’s incorporation of Liancourt Rocks
(continued)In 1905, a Japanese citizen named Nakai Yozaburo wanted to ask the Resident-General in Korea to lease him Dokdo for hunting sea lions there. He thought Dokdo was Korean land before meeting the 3 Japanese officials who led Nakai Yozaburo to change his simple request of leasing Dokdo from Korea into petition for Japanese incorporation of Dokdo. The Fishery Bureau Director Maki Bokushin and the Director of Waterway Departement of Japanese Navy Kimotsuki Kaneyuki made him believe Dokdo was not Korean land. Being persuaded by them, Nakai submitted "Request for Territorial Incorporation of Liancourt Island and Its Lease" to Japanese government, but Japanese Home Ministry´s official rejected his request saying as follows:" The gains would be extremely small while the situation would become grave by acquiring a barren islet suspected of being Korean territory during this war time with Russia. It would amplify the suspicions of various foreign countries that Japan had an ambition to annex Korea."(此時局ニ際シ(日露開戰中) 韓國領地ノ疑アル莫荒タル一箇不毛ノ岩礁ヲ收メテ環視ノ諸外國ニ我國ガ韓國倂呑ノ野心アルコトノ疑ヲ大ナラシムルハ利益ノ極メテ小ナルニ反シテ事體決シテ容易ナラズトヲ)Being discouraged, Nakai went to Political Affairs Bureau Director Yamaza Enjiro and Director Enjoro told him as follows:" the incorporation was urgent particularly under the present situation, and it is absolutely necessary and advisable to build watchtowers and install wireless or submarine cable and keep watch on the hostile warships. Particularly in terms of diplomacy, Home Ministry view is not necessary to be considered. The request should be promptly submitted to the related Department."(時局ナレバコソ其領土編入ヲ急要トスルナリ望樓ヲ建築シ無線若クハ海底電信ヲ設置セバ敵艦監視上極メテ屈竟ナラズヤ特ニ外交上內務ノ如キ顧慮ヲ要スルコトナシ須ラク速カニ願書ヲ本省ニ回附セシ厶ベシト)This is how Japan incorporated Dokdo her land. Dokdo was the first victim of Japanese Imperialism on Korea.Japanese asks why Korea didn't protest then? Korea couldn't know it until the Japanese party from Shimane Prefecture who unexpectedly visited Ulleongdo told Uldo County Governor Shim that Dokdo became Japanese land. It was on March 28, 1906, one year after Japanese annexation of Dokdo. Being reported by Governor Shim, the Korean government was angry and order to investigate it, but no further actions against Japan's annexation of Dokdo was taken. Why? Japan already deprived Korea of diplomacy right by the unfair Japan–Korea Treaty of 1905. And, understandably, the ownership of Dokdo couldn't be a major problem to Korea then in the face of being robbed of the entire country,
Kumabear,Why do the Japanese try to compare the picture of Ulleongdo and Dokdo taken by satellite today with that of old maps drawn in the 1800s in terms of their location? Anyway, that is the usual way they do when they have to deny the Meiji-era maps depicting Ulleongdo and Dokdo as Korean land. 1. The reason why Ulleongdo and Dokdo were drawn in an inaccurate locations, exactly saying, Ulleongdo and Dokdo are in Argonaut and Ulleongdo positions respectively, is explained in the link I gave.2. You said "Sometimes Dokdo was omitted."How can you know Dokdo was omitted or not? In most Meiji-era Japanese maps, Ulleong and Dokdo are located in the wrong positions. Are you going to say all those maps omitted Dokdo? The Japanese had always drawn Ulleongdo and Dokdo together in the maps for such a long time. If Dokdo was omitted, it's very, very unusual. There should be a reason. My opinion is there's no reason the Japanese mapmakers omit Dokdo.3. You wrote "sometimes three islands(Argonaut, Dagelet, and Liancourt rocks) were drawn. This map is the latter(this case)."The Japanese maps depicting three islands(Argonaut, Dagelet, and Liancourt rocks or Hornet Rocks) are very rare to find. I know only two maps, which are 大日本沿海略図(1867) and 大日本四神全(1870). (If you know more, please let me know.) In other words, the Japanese were not familiar with the western names(Argonaut, Dagelet, Liancourt Rocks). The Japanese government started to call Ulleongdo and Dokdo as "Matsushima" and "Liancourt Rocks" respectively after Amagi's survey to Ulleongdo in 1880, but Japanese traditional names Takeshima and Matsushima were widely and generally used to refer to Ulleongdo and Dokdo respectively. This can be proved by the maps published after 1880. The Japanese mapmakers during the Meiji-era generally drew only two islands -Takeshima(Ulleongdo) and Matsushima(Dokdo)- between mainland Korea and Oki Island which were the islands they had known for a long time. Drawing three islands was not usual for them. I doubt the Japanese mapmakers then knew even the identity of Argonaut and Liancourt Rocks, the western name of Dokdo. Thus, your claim the map of "新撰地誌" drew 3 islands is not plausible at all.This map was for the students. There's no need to teach the students the non-existen Argonaut Island. What matters to them was the two islands-Takeshima(Ulleongdo) and Matsushma(Dokdo)- the Japanese had perceived for a long time, I think.
Pingwie,I'd like to add more to my response to your question 1.If "隠州視聴合紀" said Ulleongdo(Takeshima) and Dokdo(Matsushima) were Japanese land, there are questions to ask.1.Why aren't there Japanese old official maps depicting those two islands as Japanese land?2. Why did the prominent Japanese scholar Nagakubo Sekisui exclude those two maps as Japanese land and wrote the phrase "見高麗猶雲州望隠州" from "隠州視聴合記" next to those two islands in his map "改正日本輿地路程全図" of 1779? 3. Why did the Edo Bakufu ask the ownership of Takeshima and Matushima in 1695 and 1696?4.Why did the famous Ino's map exclude those two islands as Japanese land?5. why did the Japanese government incorporate Dokdo into Japanese land saying it was ownerless?The answer to those questions is because Ulleongdo and Dokdo were never considered as Japanese land by Japanese people.Japanese claim "隠州視聴合紀" said Ulleongdo(Takeshima) and Dokdo(Matsushima) were Japanese land just doesn't make any sense. "隠州視聴合紀" clearly wrote the northwest boundary of Japan was Oki lsland.
Sada Hakubo, who reported “How Takeshima & Matsushima Became Part of Joseon”(朝鮮国交際始末内探書1870), made a map of Joseon several years after his report. Sada did not draw Liancourt Rocks as Joseon’s territory in that map. It shows that Matsushima in the report was not Liancourt Rocks. Pro-Korean people very often say that 朝鮮国交際始末内探書 recognized Dokdo as Joseon’s territory, without enough inspection.
Pro-Korean people like to insist about matter being not proved.They often say that The Dajoukan order(太政官指令1877) said Japan has nothing to do with Ulleungdo and Takeshima/Dokdo.But, I suspect whether they can explain the reason why Home Ministry's official did not quote "Dajoukan Order" to reject Nakai Yozaburo's petition requesting incorporation of Liancourt Rocks into Japanese territory in 1904.
Chaamiey said"Sada did not draw Liancourt Rocks as Joseon’s territory in that map. It shows that Matsushima in the report was not Liancourt Rocks."If it's true Sada Hakubo didn't Liancourt Rocks as Korean territory in his map, it's quite understandable.It's likely Dokdo was not important enough for him to draw in his map. The title of the book he wrote is "A Story of My Old Dreams about debate on the conquest of Korea" (征韓論の旧夢談)." The title shows how much he desired to conquer Korea. What he greedily wanted was the entire Korea. It's no wonder he didn't pay attention to this small, barren and uninhabited islets.It seems he had no interest in Dokdo even during his mission to Korea in 1870. He reported "We have no previous records of Matsushima(Japanese old name for Dokdo)." There are many records on Matsushima in Japan. He was just ignorant on Dokdo. "How Takeshima & Matsushima Became Part of Joseon(竹島松島朝鮮附属ニ相成候始末)" is the title of the investigation given by the Japanese government, which means Japanese government already acknowledged Takeshima and Matsushima as Korean territory. His ignorance on Dokdo has nothing to do with Chaamiey's insistence "Matsushima in the report was not Liancourt Rocks."Chaamiey said "I suspect whether they can explain the reason why Home Ministry's official did not quote "Dajoukan Order" to reject Nakai Yozaburo's petition "His statement reflects "Dajokna Order" that Japan has nothing to do with Takeshima and another island. Why didn't he quote "Dajoukan Order" to Nakai Yozaburo? Who except him knows the answer? Do you know?
I understand that Sloww or other Pro-Korean people can not elucidate the reason of the contradiction which his/their claims on the issue of "Dajoukan Order" and "How Takeshima & Matsushima Became Part of Joseon" have.But, they would insist these two claims as ever, without explaining the reason of the contradiction.
Chaamiey,Can you elucidate why there's contradition on my claim?
Mr. slowwThank you for the answer. I need time to summarize the points of both sides....
Mr.slowwYou insist Japanese people in late 19c always drew Takeshima(Ulleungdo) and Dokdo in the location of Argonaut and Dagelet respectively. In short, your claim is they were confused only about the locations so they always thought Matsushima was (today's) Takeshima whichever position it was drawn on maps. On the other hand, I assume they clearly understood the locations but had confusion about their names. >>How can you know Dokdo was omitted or not?>> I would agree with your claim if Japan made only maps depicting two islands. But considering the facts maps depicting three islands co-existed with them at the same period (fewer but surely existed) and Matsushima was drawn in the exact location and with the exact shape of Ulleungdo on every maps, I highly doubt Japanese had the consensus Matsushima was Dokdo though it can't be denied a few of them might have considered it as such.(｢朝鮮東海岸図｣（1876) also depicted three islands)http://www.geocities.jp/tanaka_kunitaka/takeshima/korea_eastcoast-1876/2.jpg If they thought Takeshima was Uleungdo and Matsushima was Dokdo, why did the following maps draw “Takeshima” with the DOTTED LINE?｢大日本沿海略図｣（1867）http://www.geocities.jp/tanaka_kunitaka31/enkairyakuzu-1867/matsushima.jpg ｢朝鮮全図｣（1875）http://www.tanaka-kunitaka.net/takeshima/chosenzenzu-1875/10.jpg ｢亜細亜東部輿地図 ｣（1875）http://www.tanaka-kunitaka.net/takeshima/asiaeast-1875/05.jpg ｢朝鮮全図｣（1876）http://www.tanaka-kunitaka.net/takeshima/chosenzenzu-1876/09.jpg Are you going to insist Japanese thought Ulleungdo was non-existent island? These maps definitively prove that Siebold's map caused confusion about their “names”, not their “positions”.
Mr. Kumabear,I didn't say the Japanese were confused only about the locations.I think the general Japanese cartographers were confused by neither locations nor names. They didn't even know they were drawing those two islands in the wrong positions or not. They just referenced the western maps without knowing the locations were wrong. How do I know that? It's because almost all of the Meiji-era maps depicting two islands -Takeshima and Matsushima- in the same or similar wrong positions. If they did know, why didn't they correct it?You wrote "If they thought Takeshima was Uleungdo and Matsushima was Dokdo, why did the following maps draw “Takeshima” with the DOTTED LINE?" I didn't say Japan made only maps depicting two islands. There are two cases Takeshima becomes non-existent Argonaut.1. There are three islands. -Takehsima ,Matsushima and Liancourt Rocks(Dokdo).2. Takeshima was drawn in a dotted line.Thus, in the maps you showed, Takeshima is Argonaut. But in the maps with only Takeshima in a solid line and Matsushima, you can't say Takeshima is Argoanut , Matsushima is Ulleongdo and Dokdo was not drawn. In the maps with only Takeshima in a solid line and Matsushima, Takeshima is Ulleongdo and Matsushima is Dokdo even though they are in the wrong positions. I gave you the reason why they are in the wrong position by a link.There are much more Japanese maps with only two islands than those with three islands or with Takeshima in a dotted line and Matsushima. This means the Japanese traditional perception on Takeshim(Ulleogndo) and Matsushima(Dokdo) was not changed even though the Japanese government drew Argonaut in some maps. (The maps you showed were made by the Japanese government. 勝海舟 was an Edo Government's official, right?)It's very misleading to make every Takeshima and Matsushima in the Meiji-era maps as Argonaut and Ulleongdo respectively. Except the two cases I gave you before, Takeshima and Matsushima are Ulleongdo and Dokdo respectively. If Takeshima is Argonaut and Matsushima is Ulloengdo because they are in the wrong locations, is there any Meiji-era Japanese map depicting only those two islands in the accurate longitude and latitude?Why are there Matsushima in the shape of Ulleongdo? It's the result of copying the western maps. 朝鮮輿地図,1894) is one example Matsushima is Dokdo even if it's shpaed as real Ulleongdo. Takeshima in this map is definitely Ulleongdo because there's the name of Moutain in Ulleongdo. Two more examples are "朝鮮輿地全圖(1875)" and "新撰朝鮮輿地全圖(1882)". Those maps at the same time prove Takeshima and Matsushima are Ulleongdo and Dokdo even though they are in the wrong positions. 大日本府縣全圖 (1 and 2) and 満韓新図 also prove Takeshima and Matsushima are Ulleongdo and Dokdo respectively even though they are in the wrong positions.
>>Why aren't there Japanese old official maps depicting those two islands as Japanese land?You'll object but there are 改正日本輿地路程全図(1779)&亜細亜小東洋図(1789)>>why did the Japanese government incorporate Dokdo into Japanese land saying it was ownerless? Japan had never formally proclaimed her sovereignty of Takeshima before 1905.(Of course, she had never formally excluded it either)I don't understand why you still can't give up 隠州視聴合記. How do you think about following facts? 1. Onshu was Bakufu's demense at the time. 2. Tottori people were permitted voyages to Ulleungdo. 3. The writer said those islands were uninhabited. 4. It was written before the first encounter with Koreans at Ulleungdo. 5. The Japanese who met Korean captured them for illegal fishing. 6. Bakufu negotiated with Korea over sovereignty of Ulleungdo.>>He(Sada Hakubo) was just ignorant on Dokdo Considering Sada's position as a diplomat, it's hard to think he has never looked through Japanese documents. >>It's no wonder he didn't pay attention to this small, barren and uninhabited islets.>> He put the name “Matsushima” into the title竹島松島朝鮮附属ニ相成候始末 and described about it because he thought the island was worth paying attention to.What if Matsushima was Usando(Jukdo)? 1. There had been no record that described Usando(Jukdo) when the document was written. 2. Usando(Jukdo) is a neighboring island of Ulleungdo. 3. He depicted only Ulleungdo-look-alike island and its neighboring island (Usando). All of them agrees together. It's no wonder his map reminds me of Korean maps, it's highly likely he referred to Korean maps & docs because he had been to Korea before he submitted 朝鮮国交際始末内探書 and made the map. 東国文献備考 says Usando was Matsushima by Japanese name.And also, you contradict yourself. You insist Ahn Yong-bok's incident (Genroku incident) led Japan to renounce Matsushima and there remain records of it in both Korea and Japan. But Sada said that ONLY Takeshima has been renounced at the Genroku incident.竹島ノ儀ニ付テハ元禄度後ハ暫クノ間 朝鮮ヨリ居留ノ為差遣シ置候処 If Matsushima was Dokdo, why did he say there had been no record about Matsushima, even though he knew about Genroku incident? It proves either of your claims is wrong.
About the question 1 I wrote,I understand all agreed the 州 is not island and the point is if the Japanese gov. ( or Shimane ) recognized the islets as Japan or not. I still cannot read like Kumabear and Gerry did, because I don't understand the relation like, author wrote " (Because) Looking at Koryo is like looking at Onshu from Unshu " and then " Therefore ~~ ". Why therefore?. But, since the point the author stood on is Ulleongdo, I found that "the island ( is Korean territory)" I mentioned is Ulleongdo not Matsushima. So, the issue is if the Matsushima belonged to the Onshu or not at that time.I need to take time to understand all about the question 2. As for my question 3, I understood the SCAPIN677 is not effective due to the paragraph 6. Thanks.
>>They just referenced the western maps without knowing the locations were wrong >>I agree with it.>>you can't say Takeshima is Argoanut , Matsushima is Ulleongdo and Dokdo was not drawn>>You can't say Takeshima is Ulleungdo and Matsushima is Dokdo either. And I didn't say mapmakers “indicated” Takeshima is Argonaut, Matsushima is Ulleungdo. What they were indicating on their maps remains a matter of speculation. I guess they didn't even know what was wrong or what was right, what island looked how and existed where correctly. They just copied other maps(Japanese's and westerners') and referred to old documents when making maps. (You admitted “It's the result of copying the western maps “) As I said before, it can't be denied maybe some of Japanese made a map believing Dokdo(Matsushima) really looked like Ulleungdo and was out of Japanese territory without accurate knowledge. But it doesn't decide anything since there were various kinds of maps coexisted while contradicting each other. One thing that is sure is only people who actually sailed (investigated) to Ulleungdo found out it was what Japanese were calling “MATSUSHIMA”. If your theory is right, they would have identified it as “TAKESHIMA”as Japanese used to do from Edo era.

Mr. Kumabear,Why aren't there Japanese old official maps depicting those two islands as Japanese land? You'll object but there are 改正日本輿地路程全図(1779)&亜細亜小東洋図(1789)0--> Japanese Web Takeshima Research Center admitted there's no Takeshima in the Japanese maps made before 1905.Japan had never formally proclaimed her sovereignty of Takeshima before 1905.(Of course, she had never formally excluded it either)--> What a contradictory statement it is!I don't understand why you still can't give up 隠州視聴合記.-->"隠州視聴合記" is not the book I can give up or not. I just let the people know "隠州視聴合記" is the first Japanese document saying Dokdo was not Japanese land. Considering Sada's position as a diplomat, it's hard to think he has never looked through Japanese documents. --> Then, why did he say there's no previous records on Matsushima ? He put the name “Matsushima” into the title竹島松島朝鮮附属ニ相成候始末 and described about it because he thought the island was worth paying attention to.---- The title "竹島松島朝鮮附属ニ相成候始末." was not made by him. It was the response to Japanese government's assignment ""竹島松島朝鮮附属ニ相成候始末."What if Matsushima was Usando(Jukdo)? -->Again, Meiji Government ordered him to find out how Takeshima and Matsushima became part of Korea. Do you think Meiji Government considered Japanese Matsushima as Usando(Jukdo)?No, right?And also, you contradict yourself. You insist Ahn Yong-bok's incident (Genroku incident) led Japan to renounce Matsushima --> I didn't say Ahn Yong-bok's incident led Japan to renounce Matsushima. Ahn's incident led to Genroku incident and Genroku incident led Japan to renounce Takeshima and Matsushima.Ahn Yong-bok's incident and Genroku incident are two separate incidents.you can't say Takeshima is Argoanut , Matsushima is Ulleongdo and Dokdo was not drawn>>--> I didn't say that. I exactly said "But in the maps with only Takeshima in a solid line and Matsushima, you can't say Takeshima is Argoanut , Matsushima is Ulleongdo and Dokdo was not drawn."It can't be denied maybe some of Japanese made a map believing Dokdo(Matsushima) really looked like Ulleungdo --> I gave the reason
Oh please you guys, if you want to have a serious debate go meet face to face. I have read the whole comments on this video, just to find out three vs one debating. The video is quite interesting, but this video has ONE definite flaw on it...which is that it is one-sided. It didn't explain the reasons, only focus on "illegal", "busted up", "brainwash", and ETC. A really clever video should be a viewpoint of both-side.
