The ministry will take the scribes to Okinawa Prefecture, which administers the Senkaku Islands claimed by China and Taiwan as Diaoyu and Tiaoyutai, and to Shimane Prefecture, which lays claim to Dokdo, the South Korea-controlled islets called Takeshima by Japan.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
