1600's? - The Map of Joseon(朝鮮国図)

Today, Choson online reported that Korean scholar found Japanese map in Edo era which depict Jasando(子山島) as Choson territory.

However, at a glance, if you have any knowledge of geography and the location of Takeshima/Dokdo, you can clealy understand that it is not today's Takeshima. It's locates north northwest of Ulleungodo and even bigger than Ulleungdo. Usando(Jasando) doesn't always mean today's Takeshima. Actually, never.

On the contrary to Korean claim, it is a good evidence that Japanese in Edo era did recognized so-called Jasando(Usando) was not Japanese Matsushima(today's Takeshima). Interestingly, Ahn Yong-bok testified the location of Jasando as north of Ulleungdo. It matchs those historical record. It is clear that Ahn's Jasando was not today's Takeshima. The Japanese map which depict Jasando is not rare, by the way.

Again, Korean scholar kindly presented a good evidence that reinforce the claims by Japan. Professor 李相泰 made it clear that Usando in some maps , including 1711 official map, are Jukdo, not today's Takeshima/Dokdo on Seoul National University site. I don't understand why this Jasando looks today's Takeshima/Dokdo to him in any way. He explains that this is geographically incorrect since it was made in 1600's and Japanese then didn't have enough knowledge of Choson, then what kind of historical value this map holds in the first place? I sincerely recommend Korean to give up the fabrication that Usando was today's Takeshima, or it goes nowhere but makes looking Korean academics pathetic to all over the world. Sadly, they look like almost comedian to me.

    Thanks. I wonder why do these "scholars" always shoot their own feet.....

    I can't believe that they truly think Usando in the map is Liancourt Rocks (Takeshima/Dokdo). If they really do, it is a proof that the level of "scholars" in Korea is very low.

    What do you think of this map? Is Jasando looks like today's Takeshima/Dokdo to you?

  5. It`s not matter whether it is Ulleungdo or Usando. I just want you to come Ulleungdo see yourself. When you arrive there, you can see the Dok-Do by your eyes. Then you will understand how stupid and useless japanese insisting on Dok-Do is.

    Moreover Japanese polictical right-wing want to revive the dead imperialism of 1900s to cover their failed policies of domestic and Diplomatic one.

    You can you why Japanese right-wing government are so addicted to territorial disputes.

    "It`s not matter whether it is Ulleungdo or Usando. "

    It matters. A lot. The professor is specialst of geography of maps.

    Visibility nor closeness has anything to do with sovereignty over the territory. What matters is effective control. So far, there is absolutely no Korean documents or maps which prove any control whatsoever.

    Don't make stupid execuses. It was Korean who burned important documents.

    The (Korean) man (at the Daepungheon (待風軒)) said that they used to have a lot more documents, but they were all intentionally burned a few decades ago.

    There are thousand of Korean old documents, as we had studied. But there is no single Korean documents or maps which shows today's Takeshima/Dokdo clearly to be their territory. Nothing.

    "who's protecting dokdo/takeshima?"

    Technically, Korean has been just illegally occupying Takeshima since 1952. A long as there is no consent from Japan, who is the right owner of Takeshima, it is impossible for international community to recognize as it is invader's.

  12. So you think that Ulleungdo residents who can see and Dok-Do every day, take it as a zone of life don`t have the control of it?

    How sad are you?

    People who lived in Ulleungdo which was Usan-Guk was korean from 512 by Silla.

    When will you forget about 1900s imperialism? You poor right-wing japanese.

  13. Say Dokdo is illegaly occupied by Koreans, then why not japanese take it back from them, even a long time ago? are they so fool? or lack of power? This clearly shows that japs have something on their mind. This is dipute is really so stupid. Japs in World War II, invaded almost every country in Asia can killed many and raped many women, especially Koreans. They really should keep their dirty mouth shut if they are sorry about what they have done in the past. Shame on japan! The war hasn't even been over for a century yet, are you jap monkeys trying to start war again? Grow up, dudes.

    "So you think that Ulleungdo residents who can see and Dok-Do every day, take it as a zone of life don`t have the control of it? "

    Sigh...

    Takeshima/Dokdo cannot be seen from Ulleungo every day. It is less than 5-7 days a year even there is modern observation platform with a direction sign. Actually, there is only one record that wrote about visibility from Ulleungdo. Only one. This 1694 張漢相 official report turned out to be the crucial evidence for Usando to be Jukdo, not Takeshima/Dokdo. 

    Usanguk didn't include today's Takeshima. Usan(Usando) was the old name for Ulleungdo and it's country. Later in 1700's Usando became the name of Jukdo, or sometimes, a mystery flying island, but never be Takeshima/Dokdo. Choson people didn't know where it is until early 1900s when Japanese hired and took Korean to the island for seal hunting. Korean first called it "Yanko" just like Japanese, then they changed the name to "Dokdo", which means "sole or lonly island."

    The Japanese are being irradical and unfair.
    Even by just looking at the map you can see Dokdo is far closer to Korea than it is to Japan.
    Also, Korea has most of the documents about Dokdo and from the past that proves that Dokdo is clearly Korea's territory.
    It is unjust for Japan to whip up some ridiculous facts and bring back things from WWII and try to 'PROVE' that dokdo is theirs.
    Can you even SEE dokdo from Japan?
    How could anyone possibly say that the Korean's are illegally occupying dokdo? When it is the koreans that are trying to protect and save dokdo?
    What have the japanese done for the beautiful island on the yellow sea?
    Just spit out lies and say that it's theirs and changing their history isn't a good enough arguement.
    And if it is true that the Koreans are illegally occupying Dokdo, why don't the Japanese confront them and ask for it back? Why can't they do that? Afterall the Koreans are 'ILLEGALLY' occupying it.
    I think this is absolutely ridiculous how the Japanese are trying to take over Korean territory.
    I don't even see why they want more of the sea, because they are an island and all four sides of their country are surrounded by the ocean.
    I'm telling the Japanese here.
    If you think you are so right and if you think Dokdo is yours, prove it.
    Not with some faulty piece of paper, give specific dates AND prove EVERYTHING and not JUST what YOU want the world to know and believe.
    It's not too late to say sorry and back off. I'm sick and tired of Japan, how they raped korean women and brutally killed korean men.
    It is about time for the Japanese to spot their faults and stay silent.
    I mean what kind of a right do the Japanese have?
    Stop using dirty tricks to occupy Korean land before things get more serious.
    The Japanese government is pissing the whole korean public off.

    It's not just a piece of paper. Japan officially incorporated Takeshima into Shimane prefecture in 1905.

    "28th January 1905 (the 38th year of Meiji)

    We have examined the proposal by the Secretary of the State for Home Affairs, which was about an uninhabited island. As to the uninhabited island, at 37 degree 9' 30" N. latitude, 131 degree 55' E. longitude and 85 sea miles northwest of Oki island, there were no traces of occupation by any other countries and as a Japanese Nakai Yozaburo recently petitoned to incorporate the island and to lend it to him after he began sea lion hunting at the island two years ago in the 36th year (of Meiji, 1903), built a hut for fishery, tranferred laborers and got proper fishing gear, we need to clarify the belonging to which prefecture and the name of the island. The proposal asked us how about to name the island as Takeshima and to make it control under the jurisdiction of the local government of Oki island of Shimane prefecture from now on.

    So we examined the matter and found that there is a fact of occupation under the international law as it is clear from related documents that Nakai Yozaburo moved to the island since the 36th year of Meiji (1903) and has engaged in fishery there. So we think that we may make it belong to Japan and put it under the jurisdiction of the local government of Oki island of Shimane prefecture. So we admit that it is reasonable to let the Cabinet make the decision as the proposal.  "

    You need to be precice like this about the location of the island if you wanted to be recognized it as your territory internationally.

    Everyone, could you please use IDs so that who is talking what? Thanks.

    Good point. It simply means those islands on this map doesn't necessary represent the territorial claim. Thus, even this Jasando doesn't mean it is Choson territory. Professor Lee should have known this simple facts, but he apparently ignored the fact.

    Takeshima/Dokdo cannot be seen from Ulleugdo "clearly". It's just a tip of the islets which can be seen from Ullengdo and it is less than 5-7 days a year.

    Anyway, visibility and closeness has absolutely nothing to do with sovereignty. Are you allowed to grab everything you can see from the right owner in Korea?

  32. Everybody, be calm. We have to be cool and consider about the issue seriously.

    yl,

    You wrote; "Say Dokdo is illegaly occupied by Koreans, then why not japanese take it back from them, even a long time ago?"

    Japan claimed just after Rhee Syngmann declared the Rhee Syngmann Line and after that keeps claiming regularly. But she can't attack by military power because the Constitution of Japan prohibits from using military power to resolve international disputes.

    But this illegal occupation is thought to be an invasion, Japan can attack Korea militarily ...although this should be the last step. If this occured, there will be a war, so Japan can't do it easily.

    But when one keeps claiming, another one can't get ownership of the land under the international law. So even if Korea keeps occupying Liancourt Rocks for 100 years, it won't be their island.

    To resolve the dispute peacefully, two countries must go to ICJ. USA advised Korea to go to ICJ and Japan proposed to do so but Korea keeps rejecting it.

    anonymous,
    You wrote;
    "Also, Korea has most of the documents about Dokdo and from the past that proves that Dokdo is clearly Korea's territory".

    Please show us the documents if there are such documents. We reviewed Korean documents but they only mentioned Usando where people could live...it can't be Takeshima/Dokdo because Takeshima/Dokdo is barren rocks and no one can't live there.

    Please read the articles in this blog and think about it calmly. Thank you.

    Tsushima Island (対馬 Tsushima) belongs to Joseon(Korea)on map.
    Thank you.

    The name of map is Joseon(Korea)'s national map(朝鮮国図). It means that the map shows only Joseon's(Korea) territory. People can see well the truth on this map which is made by Japanese in 1600's. The map says that both Dokdo Island(Takeshima) and Tsushima(対馬) were Korean territory.

  34. Anonymous,

    There is no Takeshima/Dokdo in the map, it only shows Usando just beside Korean peninsula.
    A map doesn't always mean territorial claim, Tsushima maybe drawn to show the location of it.

    The most important thing here is that Usando was not Liancourt Rocks (Takeshima/Dokdo).

  36. It is interesting that Jejudo is mentioned as two islands "濟州" and "耽羅(Tamna)" in the Japanese map.

    So, on the contrary to the claim by the Korean professor, the map itself is a self-contradicting proof that "子山島" and "爵陵(鬱陵)" in the map don't necessarily mean two islands. :-)

  37. anonymous,

    For elementary kids, manybe. But for Junior high school students and over, it is not territorial map.

    If you want to claim you found a evidence Tsushima belongs to Korea, why don't you go and report your "finding" to professor Lee Sang-te? I think it makes Korean academics wonder what was wrong with their educational system.

  39. But, there are only two islands near the east cost of Korea, as you can see in the modern map. So the location of the 'jusando' could be wrong, but you must remember there are only two island, ulung-do and dok-do.

    Do you understand? There are only two islands, and that means one is ulung-do, and the other is dok-do.

    LOOK AT THE MODERN MAP. THERE ARE ONLY TWO ISLANDS NEAR THE EAST COST OF KOREA. THAT MEANS ONE IS ULUNG-DO AND THE OTHER IS DOK-DO. GOT IT?

    Which is bigger, Jukdo or Dokdo?
    Which is nearer to Choson, Jukdo or Dokdo?
    Which island consists of only one islets, Jukdo or Dokdo?

    Now, you'll understand it is not Takeshima/Dokdo.

    HA!

    It is just one of evidence to find a old Japanese map which can prove our right on Dok-do.

    Are you joking?

    Let me link one site. Of course that is a korean site and also written by Korean.
    But, still you can see many of our old maps where Dok-do is pointed clearly.

    This discovery is just small thing and as that is A JAPANESE MAP, there are a lot of mistakes made by porpose.

    The location of JASANDO is different from our old map.

    THIS old jap's map is totally wrong like you people. ;)


    That is an old 1600? japanese map and that is about the other country, Korea.

    But, your idea about JASANDO is based on this old jap's map. ha! ;)

    Let me introduce this site where many of old Korean map are posted again.

    TO everybody here,

    This is one of links where many old Korean map pointing DOK-DO.

    These map are not japanese old map which indicated the other countries like Korea or Chinese.

    And you should know that in that time, the japanese civilization is not quite good enough to make a good map.
    As you can see, in the 1600 years The China was the best country in East Asia.
    China was the best and Korea was next, then Japan was the last in their civilization.

    only after 1890, Japan started to be rich and civilized by the United States. ;0

    The old Japan was not like nowadays.

    You should know this, when you look the old japanese map or old history documents.

    Hi, I am a Japanese woman living Japan.
    I knew this site through Japanese yahoo web site relating to this issue. I don't have any bad feelings for Korean. On the other hand, I am fed up with this issue as Korea often mention this issue especially when the Korean president suffers from low populatity rationg. To cause nationalistic feeling is easy to get popularity, but silly way to treat this issue.

    It's easy to solve the ploblem. Japanese government has offered Korean Government to settle this case at International Court of Justice several times. Why Korea never accept the offer?
    There's no need to be emotional for both Korean and Japanese.

    Hi, junno

    Thank you for your quick reply.

    I still think "the International Court of Justice" is the best answer.
    Think about the United Nations!
    You know the secretaly general of the United Naions is a Korean, now. I am a Japanese, but I don't think he treats Japan badly.

    Why can't you believe in the fairness of the Court? If We live in international community. Both of us should respect international law. This issue should not be solved by popularity poll. So, even all the Korean believe the island is their own country, it means nothing if it is againt the law. Vice versa.

  67. And do you know? The all expenses of the International Court is now supported by Japanese goverment.

    And the judge of the court is the father of japan prince's wife.

    And I also know what did the Japanese gavernment to the other international organization by THE MONEY.

    you can see by yourself the map, by google earth and the other detail methods.

    And you can also calculate the distance between juk do and ullung do. and you can see juk do is also one of group island of ullung-do.

    just down load 'the google earth' and look.

    But, the wikipedia say like this. Juk-do is a seperated group of island from ullung-do and 4kilometers from ullung do.

    How ridiculous!!!
    Just check and calculate by yourself.

    AND I ALSO KNOW THEY CHANGED THEIR OPPINON SOME YEARS AGO, BECAUSE OF JAPAN'S LOBBY AND MONEY.

    This is one of reason why we don't accept the judge.

    Hi, Junno

    Do you know that Japanese goverment pays more than 25% of budget of the United Nations every year? But, still a Korean could be the President. And you know, Japan has been wanted to be a permanent menber of UN Security Council. But, Japan still couldn't get the seat.
    If Korea do the same thing, Korean could understand that "money talks but not so often".
    It's the same in the International Court of Justice.

    Mr. Owada, the father of Princess Masako, used to be a vice minister of foreign affairs in Japan long before his daughter got married Prince. Mr. Owada got the post not because he is the father of the princess, but because of his abillity. And Japanese loyal family NEVER commits politics. It's against constitution of Japan.
    So, don't worry about fairness of his personality.
    Take it easy!

  72. junno,

    The International Court of Justice is not that kind of unfair organ.

    Read;
    "Judges must be elected from among persons of high moral character, who possess the qualifications required in their respective countries for appointment to the highest judicial offices, or are jurisconsults of recognized competence in international law.

    The Court may not include more than one national of the same State. Moreover, the Court as a whole must represent the main forms of civilization and the principal legal systems of the world.

    In practice this principle has found expression in the distribution of membership of the Court among the principal regions of the globe. Today this distribution is as follows: Africa 3, Latin America and the Caribbean 2, Asia 3, Western Europe and other States 5, Eastern Europe 2, which corresponds to that of membership of the Security Council. Although there is no entitlement to membership on the part of any country, the Court has always included judges of the nationality of the permanent members of the Security Council.

    Once elected, a Member of the Court is a delegate neither of the government of his own country nor of that of any other State. Unlike most other organs of international organizations, the Court is not composed of representatives of governments. Members of the Court are independent judges whose first task, before taking up their duties, is to make a solemn declaration in open court that they will exercise their powers impartially and conscientiously.

    In order to guarantee his or her independence, no Member of the Court can be dismissed unless, in the unanimous opinion of the other Members, he/she no longer fulfils the required conditions. This has in fact never happened.

    No Member of the Court may engage in any other occupation during his/her term. He/she is not allowed to exercise any political or administrative function, nor to act as agent, counsel or advocate in any case. Any doubts with regard to this question are settled by decision of the Court."

    http://www.icj-cij.org/court/index.php?p1=1

    And the president and vice -president are not Japanese or Korean:

    "On 6 February 2006 the Court elected Judge Rosalyn Higgins (United Kingdom) to be President and Judge Awn Shawkat Al-Khasawneh (Jordan) to be Vice-President".

    There is only a Japanese, Hisashi Owada, in the ICJ but he is one of judges in the Budgetary and Administrative Committee and Rules Committee.

    If you can't believe such a fair international organ, your country won't be relied by any other countries in the world. Are you going back to the closed country of Yi Dynasty?

    Hi, Raquel

    Thanks for your advice. I think to exchange opinions with Korean is not in vain. We should understand more each other.

    I know how Korean(and Chinese) educate their children about history. For Japanese, the war is long time ago. But, it's only yesterday for Korean and Chinese. Maybe, they want to get respect from Japanese. We, Japanese, should try to understand their feelings more.
    At the same time, Korea (and China)should learn how to behave in internatilnal community.
    In any problems, Korean always mention about the war and imperialism, in the end. There's no relationship with the war in this case. But, when I turned on TV, I saw Korean were swearing roudly. Part of them are wartime comfort women and mentioned about the war and how they are badly treated by Japanese. As a woman, I feel angry for Japanese Government treated women badly(it was not only Korean women's problem). But, why comfort women mentioned about the war even if there's no relationship with this case?
    Korea shoud stop changing the subject when talking about another problem.

    Anyway, I have a dream like "Maratin Luther King". Someday, Japanese and Korean can be real good friends!

The people in the island are coreans, so if jap takes it back, what are they gonna do to the koreans on the island? kick them out? I really don't understand. Also, past is past, and present it present. Corea should forget about japonais brutality towards them, and the japanses should just leave coreans alone, so they don't get reminded of the past.
    One last words. Unless jap wants war, there's nothing to lose on this island for the japs. There is no jap history on this island or any japanses people. Look at the coreans. They used to cover much more land, and i heard many historical sites on korean history is in china.. but coreans just leave those at china. not take it away. japanese: hold hands, don't declare war.

    after world war II, German regretted their behavior really. and they really apologied to the other european countries.

    But, the JAP didn't do that.
    they just pretended to regret and apology by the show of their prime minister.

    every Asian in Asia know that.

    why still china and korea think the war was just like the things of yesterday?

    Hi, Raquel

    Last year, I've visited in Viet Nam. I heard a little about Korean at the war.
    ...It seems Korean were very brutal at the war and killed many women and children. I heard even babies were killed brutaly.

    But, how can I compare them with Japanese at WW2? I don't think Japanese did the same thing for Korean. But, thinking about Nanjing Massacre, there were Japanese brutaly killed Chinesse women and children at the war. I know the number of Chinese victims at Nanjing were overexaggerated and several brutal pictures are doctored by China. But, still there's a fact that Japanese soldiers killed many unarmed women and children in Nanjing.
    So, I don't know. I can't compare.

  88. and about the education,

    German teach their young people that nazzi is bad.

    but, still JAPANESE GOVERNMENT teach their young children like this.

    "At the time of 1900's year, invasion and conqure the other countries is normal thing. So that's not a big bad thing. We could not help anymore, we should attack the other countries for our living."

    Did you talk about the education? ha

    I know, and you should know, and the GOD in heaven must know that.

    And I really wish God to do something.

    Who knows? A really BIG TSUNAMI WILL ATTACK THE JAP.

    Do you know this? the only people who are attacked by automic boms is this japanese.

    I really don't want to say this, but I think they are really cursed people on the unsafe land.

    I am sorry for that, but The japanese government and some stupid people in japan make me to say this finally.

    This issue is the key to the true friendship of the two countries.
    So we can't ignore the issue.

    Both of the governments should have serious talks bringing documents and maps together in a scientific manner. Truth is only one.

    And if the talks didn't work well, both of the countries should go to ICJ. This is the most fair way to resolve the issue.

    Korean governments, who keep rejecting to go to ICJ, should recognise that they have a responsibility for the issue.

    hi, Raquel

    Thanks to your honest opinion.
    Do you think war is better than law?
    For you, Korean, international law seems not good enough. But, there's nothing better than law at the moment.
    So, it's a common sense to obey the international rule even though you don't want.
    Do you think Japan is arrogant because Japan is an advanced country and Korea is not? I don't think so. But, if you really think so, why don't do the same thing that Japan do? Japanese government pays lots of money for poor countries in Asia and Africa. When it comes to earthquake, Japan always paied lots of money for the countries even though we have huge amount of debt. Korea should take responsibility for international community. If Korea did the same, Korea could get the same respect from other countries.

    Don't be emotional.
    I was born and grown up in Japan, but I haven't learned history like you said. I've learned that War Crimes were to blame. After Tokyo tribunal of war criminals, many of leaders were hanged or went into jail. If you are talking about ordinaly people, they had no choice to attend the war. Even in Germany, only Nazzi and Hitlar was blamed. Ordinally people weren't blamed, because they had no choice.

    It's contraversal if Showa emperor, Hirohito, was to blame. Right wing is deny his responsibility. But, personally, I think Hirohito was to blame. But, he was escaped from hanging. It was not his wish at the time. It was America decided not to hang him up(Now, we can know the truth by some documants). America government thought Hirohito is useful to govern Japan easily. And actually, Hirohito helped a lot.

    Anyway, don't confuse what government did and people.

    but, they took our young women to their military base.

    to have a fun, they didn't kill our girls.

    however, still the japanese government insist that the girls were volunteers and hockers.

    ye ye~ the korean young girls must volunteer for the victory of japan empire, ye~ that's right, or they do that for the money at the border line's military bases.

    how wonderful!!

    and now you said, we didn't kill the korean women.

  137. Do you know the " Kant " ?

    The great philosopher of German.

    The "Immanuel Kant" ,

    who was so functual that every citizen in his hometown corrected their watches when he took a walk in the street.

    And do you know his hometown is still in the territory of Rusia.

    Do you know why?

    Because the German government say nothing about that place.

    They are so sorry about their behavior during the world war II that they don't say anything about the 'Kant' hometown.

    That is the regret. And that is the repenter. That is the real attitude of saying sorry.

    But, how is this JAP?

    Dok-do was the Korean island from 500 AD.

    When the JAP attcked Korea in 1905, they took this island from Korea.

    So after the downfall of JAP'S empire, Korea took the island again.

    But now look at Jap's behavior.

    Do you think the Jap regretted really? are they really sorry for the history?

    No, they just pretend to feel sorry.

    Please, think about the 'Kant' hometown and this 'Dok-do' situation.

    There is no such document because Japan never ever had admitted Liancourt Rocks to be Korean territory.

    You maybe confused with the fact that the Shogunate gave up Ulleungdo (Takeshima in those days) in the late 17th century.
    But they never gave Matsushima (Liancourt Rocks) to Korea.

  152. The JAPANESE deserves to be written as a "Jap"

    sayaga,

    told us that she is jap and she was taught the behavior of jap's empire should be blamed.

    But, the behaviors of Jap 100 years ago and now are totally same.

    They never regret, but just pretend. :0

    Jap deserves to be pointed as Jap.

    It's their fault, not ours.

    << look at the situation of 100 years ago, in 1905 >>

    In 1905, there were a lot of Jap's soldiers around the palace of Chosen DYNASTY.(the kingdom of old Korea)

    He, the commander of soldiers, said " we are here to protect the king of Korea from chinese army."

    However inside of the palace, there were a prime minister of Jap and the king of Korea, and the prime minister started to threaten the king to sign a agreement for an unification between Korea and Jap.

    And then, Korea and Jap were unified to the Jap empire.

    And still now, the JAP insist that the unification was legal, it was made by the international LAW~

    ;)

    << NOW look at this 'DOK-DO' situation >>

    Everyday the japanese say " GO TO THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE where the father of jap's princess is staying as a JUDGE."

    How genius !!

    They are all same and never change their mind through 100 years. WOW!

    They are really genius. They are really good at cheating THE OTHER PEOPLE.

    GOOD~

    In front of people, Jap pretend to be like an angel.

    But, behind of people, Jap start to make a stratege for cheatting the others.

    They are really a wolf with a mask of sheep.

    It is understandable that you are confused, .since his site is full of lies and half-truths driven by ethno-hatred. But you have to think who is telling truth on your own, unfortunately. I honestly hope you are going to read our posts and compare with other pro-Korean sites. We have peruzed hundreds of ducuments from Korea, Japan and western and concluded that there is no single proof that Korean had ever effective control over Takeshima/Dokdo before 1952.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Hi Sayaka

    You remind of me 2 years ago. I was just like you and thinking that we can communicate each other, since we have lots in common. But, after I started to study this issue, I just realized how serious the Korean historical distortion is, and we don't share almost nothing in common. I think we are totally different, Japanese and Korean.

    Yes, when it comse to Takeshima/Dokdo issue, especially, Korean never ever listen to other side's story and only listen to what they want to hear. It seems almost crazey for ordinary Japanese like me. But sometimes, there are one or two, out of 10,000 Korean, IMO , who has ability to talk and write logically. So I guess, we have to keep presenting "facts" to those Korean who has some ability to think and learn the truth.

    Anyway, thank you for your comments. I hope you'll study about Takeshima issue and commit our blog often. This is some kind of penance or something I guess, but we have to say wrong is wrong. If ordinary citizens like us get more concerned about the issue and learn the truth about Takeshima that Korean claim is absurd and they are using this as a verbal attack and diplomatic card against us, maybe our government would do more.

  168. Thanks for the reply Kaneganese.
    Well, those maps on the previous links looked reasonable also. I don't think we should be allowed to say that they are just lies. Don't get me wrong though. I am not on the Korean side either. Recently, I have also read an article about how a Japanese professor believed that Korea surely has all the proofs gathered. However, Korea has not done enough work to let the world know about it. Japan as translated their resources into many languages, but the Korean society has not done as much. And according to that professor, if Korea just gathers together to organize all the resources they have and reveal it to the world in various translations, the game's over. I see Japan has some respectable professors. Well... whatever the real truth is, I just hope it gets settled soon, and no more conflict forms between the two counntries.

  170. Confused,

    I hope your confusion will re resolved soon.

    As to the maps Steve Barber (Dokdo-Takeshima.dom) showed you;

    The first map is not a proof of ownership of islands. It was written personally by a Japanese but the colour doesn't mean territory - he may have only coloured the places in the topic. Anyway, this is not an official map - one can't say ownership based on such a hand-written map.

    The second one is about the document "How Takeshima and Matsushima became part of Joseon" but Matsushima in the document is not always directing Liancourt Rocks (Dokdo). Please read the following article:

    http://dokdo-or-takeshima.blogspot.com/2007/06/1870-report-how-tamkshima-matsushima.html

    The next six maps are old Japanese maps Steve always show but there are many Japanese maps, some doesn't have Matsushima (Liancourt Rocks) while some have "Matsushima". So you can't say about the ownership even if these maps didn't show Matsushima (Liancourt Rocks). If Steve's method is adapted to Korean maps, all the Korean maps must have "Dokdo" to prove that "Dokdo is Korean land"... Steve is shooting his own foot with such a childish thought.

    Yes, there are lots of Japanese academics who blindly support Korea. They have their reason to do so. Most of them are communism and socialism sympathizer. Their agenda is to accuse Japanese government and build the nation like North Korea. The point is, in Japan, it is allowed to speak anti-Japan/pro-Korean side, but in Korea, it is almost a suicide for pro-Japan sympathizer when it comes to Takeshima/Dokdo.

    Anyway, use your brain when you read those ethno-hatred sites. Don't be dragged into their rhetoric. And keep it mind, you should always refer to the original documents when they present some. Since they always conceal what they don't want to show in order to mislead the readers.

    But, Japan government has direct responsobility to the comfort women. They leaded it. Now, Japanese nationalism makes a problem. Japan must go home.

    Say Dokdo is illegaly occupied by Koreans, then why not japanese take it back from them, even a long time ago? are they so fool? or lack of power? This clearly shows that japs have something on their mind. This is dipute is really so stupid. Japs in World War II, invaded almost every country in Asia can killed many and raped many women, especially Koreans. They really should keep their dirty mouth shut if they are sorry about what they have done in the past. Shame on japan! The war hasn't even been over for a century yet, are you jap monkeys trying to start war again? Grow up, dudes.


    ---------------------------------

    So let me get this straight. You wonder why Japan won't take the islands back by force, while simultaneously accusing Japan of trying to start a war... by NOT trying to take Dokdo back by force?

    Is there a single Korean on planet Earth that can make a logical argument? Just one? There must be at least one, somewhere.

    Apologize and pay money for Vietnamese. There're many Korean-Viernamese in VietNam, because of rape. You, Korean take responsible for their lives. VietNamese are poorer than Korean.

    Paying money is not enough. They might never forgive you. But, still pay money. Just apologize means nothing for them. Pay huge amounts of money, then you have to work for them as a result. That is important thing.

    Talking about Korean War comfort women, how poor they are! They were abused by their own country's men. When they curse the Korean men, they have to curse their own blood too as Korean. How crucial it is!

    You, Korean are hypocrite. You don't mind how other people feel, but do mind very much what you feel. If all the Korean were like you, how nice people Korean are!

    I don't think American government ordered Korea to take war comfort women.
    Did American ordered Korean to rape VietNamese? Did American ordered to burn babies even though they were still alive?
    You, Korean should face the fact and take responsibility for that.

  192. Actually if we find something, then we should appology to vietnam, and have to help them.


    Yes, I agree,
    If our korean soldiers did some or many wrong things to the vietnam women, then we should apology sincerely.

    But, you jap's girl, don't say.

    you are not the one who proclaim our sin.

    ok? just shut up. and I will never answer to you who don't have any sense of shame.

    Just get out.

  193. saya,

    Those Koreans are too busy with themselves.

    What they did in Vietnam by raping and murdering Vietnamese women and children means nothing to those good-hearted Koreans.

    They are not hypocrites. Even hypocrites know what is good and bad.

    You'd better apologize first.

    I'm Korean,
    and this might make me biased
    because of the education I recieved
    but I don't think
    ANY of you should diss the whole country, no matter if it's Japan or Korea.

    Some people in Korea don't even care about the issue about Dokdo
    and I'm sure some people in Japan
    don't care about Takeshima either.

    I don't see why
    some of you are dissing the whole country because of some individuals going barabaric over this situation.

    Especially Raquel and Juuno.
    To me, when I read your comments I think this is just a 'dispute' between you two.
    So keep it to yourselves and don't mention the whole country and start dissing the countries. Diss yourselves.

    As a Korean, I do believe that Dokdo belongs to Korea and it has always been Korean property.

    However I wouldn't mind the Japanese thinking that it's Takeshima, because after all the Japanese people are to believe what they have learnt.
    We can't blame them, because that is what they have been learning and what they have been taught.

    I don't know when this issue of Dokdo or Takeshima will die down, but I do hope it doesn't ruin the relationships between Korea and Japan.

    Raquel and Sayaka, I think you two are going a bit too far here.

    Korean Dog?
    Korean- version Nazi?

    And what do you think you are?

    What gives you the right to say such a thing?

    Do you have any conscience of what you are saying?

    And Sayaka,
    where exactly did you hear about
    a Korean raping a Japanese tourist?
    Are you sure it's not some sort of rumour that was spread to worsen the reputation of Koreans?

    I think you two are going a bit too far.
    You guys should know when to stop and when you're crossing the line.
    Just because you can hide your identities online and none of us are meeting face to face, this doesn't mean you guys can make rude comments as such.

    And Juuno, stop doing the same thing towards Japan as well.

    This whole thing is a debate about Liancourt Rocks, NOT about which country is better.

    Thanks for your comment. I'm with you.

    Although we may have different views on the issue, we have to talk with respect to each other.

    I'm a Japanese but I respect Korean culture. I hope you Korean people do have the same kind of respect to Japanese culture too.

    Even the educational basis is different, we can discuss the matter calmly.

    I'm glad to know you, Anonymous (please use some identity name), you let us know that there are gentle and intelligent people in Korea who can discuss the matter with us calmly.

    Please read the article I have just posted and give us your opinios. Different opinions are welcome (of course).

    BTW, please remember that Japan refuted just after Rhee Syngmann made the line in the 1950's - it was long before the undermarine resources were found.

    Those words were not meant to you personally. They were meant to specific Koreans:
