Japanese citizens have grown less interested in two groups of islets at the heart of territorial disputes with China and South Korea, summer surveys conducted by the Cabinet Office show.

The surveys covered the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, which are administered by Japan but claimed by China and Taiwan as Diaoyu and Tiaoyutai, as well as Takeshima, a pair of rocky outcroppings in the Sea of Japan that are held by Seoul but claimed by Tokyo. South Korea calls Takeshima Dokdo.
