Ninety-six Japanese have visited a pair of South Korea-controlled, Japan-claimed islets in the Sea of Japan over the last 12 years, a Seoul daily reported Wednesday.

The Japanese visitors are among the 1.94 million people who have traveled to the islets, known as Dokdo in Korean and Takeshima in Japanese, since 2005, the JoongAng Ilbo reported, citing data released by the local management office for the islets in Ulleung County, South Gyeongsang Province.
