Territory marker disappears again (Asahi Shimbun)

Takeshima Survey by lawmaker Tsuji and others
[Yonago] Cabinet Comittee member Tsuji Masanobu, Official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Kawakami, Public Safety Section Director Komori of the 8th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters and others traveled on the Sakai Coast Guard Office patrol boat "Nagara" (270 tons) to survey the problem islands of Takeshima, departing from Sakai Port in Tottori Prefecture at around midnight on the 16th. At around noon on the 17th, they approached within about 300 meters of Takeshima, but could not disembark owing to mist, so after inspecting the islands from the sea for about an hour, they returned to Sakai at past 5 a.m. on the 18th.
