The J-goverment bought the islands from a Japanese family called Kurihara who owned the islands. They had previously been renting them on a yearly basis. Ishihara was going to buy the islands and then probably built a port or such like which would have infuriated the Chinese even more. The Japanese government actually bought the islands to diffuse the situation.

So you think the Chinese 'activists' weren't state sponsored then? No, the National Front is not in front of the Ecuadorian Embassy and why would they be? But I will tell you who is in front of the embassy. A bus load of British police just waiting to be given the go ahead to go in and arrest him!

@Marion Wm Steele
What are you going on about? Okinawa whether you like it or not is part of Japan. I'm not opposed to Okinawan independence but that is another issue! You seem to think that an independent Okinawa would have a great relationship with China. Think again! I used to work in China and have been told by many times by Chinese that Okinawa ALSO belongs to China! There is a whole lot of aggression towards Japan coming from young people in China, encouraged of course by the government. Always a good way for the government to divert attention away from domestic problems.
The Senkakus were handed back to Japan by the U.S. in 1972 but the U.S. currently claims neutrality on this issue which is just ridiculous in my opinion. They use the threat of China to maintain their presence in Japan yet when Japanese territory is threatened they claim neutrality.

The average Hong Kong diet is not that great as they eat out a lot. But on the other hand most people don't own cars, so you do a lot of walking which is great exercise. And Chinese people are more sociable and have strong family ties which is an important factor in the longevity equation, I believe.
