  Japanese administration of the Kuril Islands - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This was because the Edo Shogunate controlled islands south of Etorofu and had guards stationed on those islands to prevent incursions by foreigners.
In 1930, 8,300 people lived on Kunashiri island and 6,000 on Etorofu island, and most of them were engaged in coastal and high sea fishing.
Kuril's defense was entrusted to Kita Chisima and Minami Chisima "Fortress", Imperial Japanese Army defensive organization along with the Imperial Japanese Navy with command in Sapporo and Nemuro.

 Haruko Saito: The Northern Territory Problem, Past and Present
The Second Article of the Treaty provided that the boundary line was demarcated between Etorofu (Iturup) and Urup, and "all the Island of Etorofu belongs to Japan, all the Island of Urup and the Kuril Islands to the north of it (Urup) belongs to Russia" in the Japanese text (underlined by the author).
Secondly the Kuril Islands are geographically on the chain of volcanos from Kunashiri to Shumushu.
Kunashiri and Etorofu are excluded of the Kuril Islands abandoned by Japan in the Peace Treaty of San Francisco.

Etorofu in Japanese (択捉島), or "Iturup" in Russian (Итуруп)
However, the Soviet Union chose not to be signatory to the San Francisco Treaty.
The whole of Etorofu shall belong to Japan; and the Kurile Islands, lying to the north of and including Uruppu, shall belong to Russia." Note that Kunashiri, Shikotan and Habomais Islands are not explicitly mentioned in the treaty.

Questioned in the Diet on Oct. 19, 1951, over whether the word "Kurils" as used in the treaty included Etorofu and Kunashiri, the head of the Foreign Ministry Treaties Bureau, Nishimura Kumao, said unambiguously that both the northern Chishima and southern Chishima (Etorofu and Kunashiri) were included.
Etorofu and Kunashiri are always called Minami (southern) Chishima in Japanese.
Be all that as it may, the U.S., which in 1951 had forced Japan to renounce all claim to the Kurils, including Etorofu and Kunashiri, in 1956 was able to threaten to turn Okinawa into a U.S. colony if Japan did not maintain all claim to the Kurils, including Etorofu and Kunashiri.

This is not to pour cold water on the Japanese claims for the Northern Territories.
Unfortunately the Japanese legal claim over Etorofu and Kunashiri is almost non-existent since Japan, under pressure from the west, renounced all right and claim to "the Kurile Islands" in the 1951 San Francisco Peace Treaty.
At the time it admitted sadly, but openly, that Etorofu and Kunashiri were included in the Kurile Islands it had renounced.

 The Kurile Islands
During these negotiations, Japan reportedly claimed territorial rights to Etorofu, Kunashir, Shikotan, and Habomai, and demanded the return of these islands, but the position maintained by the Soviet Union was that they would return Shikotan and Habomai, but could not return Etorofu and Kunashir.
Thus, it is considered that only the question of Etorofu and Kunashir Islands remain as an issue to be resolved in the peace treaty negotiations.
Furthermore, in the Communique, it was agreed that the peace treaty should be the document marking the final resolution of war-related issues, including the territorial issue and that work to conclude the preparation of a peace treaty would be accelerated.

 Japan in Their Own Words
In March 2001 then Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori proposed to Putin during talks in Irkutsk that simultaneous negotiations be held on the reversion of the Habomai and Shikotan islands (whose return was promised in the 1956 declaration) and on the sovereignty of the Kunashiri and Etorofu islands.
Under the proposal, territorial negotiations would place emphasis on the sovereignty of Kunashiri and Etorofu while a special work group would be set up to discuss details of the return of Habomai and Shikotan.
It would be an illusion to expect that the agreement on the two-track talks would lead to some dramatic progress in negotiations on the peace treaty.

 Alexander's Gas & Oil Connections - Creative thinking on the Kuril Islands
This 37:63 split of the entire area of the disputed islands could be a win-win international resolution as well as a lose-lose result in the two countries' domestic politics, since giving up perceived sovereignty always goes against national sentiment.
In addition, while Etorofu is known for its self-sustaining economy, supported by one major monopolistic fish processing firm called Gidrostroy, Kunashiri and Shikotan, both closer to Hokkaido, have been suffering from economic woes and are more dependant on the Japanese economy, especially Hokkaido Nemuro's local fishery industries.
Further, given the shifting balance of power in Asia due to the rapid rise of China as a major political and economic power and the implications of North Korean problems and energy resources in Russia, cooperation between Japan and Russia is strategically very important.

 MOFA: Preface
The treaty peacefully established that the islands of Etorofu, Kunashiri, Shikotan and Habomai were Japanese territory, and that the islands to the north or Uruppu were Russian territory.
According to the Treaty for the Exchange of Sakhalin for the Kurile Islands of May 7, 1875, the islands from Uruppu to Shumush were peacefully ceded by Russia to Japan in exchange for the concession of Japanese rights to the island of Sakhalin.
In the Convention on Fundamental Principles for Relations between Japan and the USSR of January 20, 1925 that announced the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and the Soviet Union, the Soviet Union agreed that the Portsmouth Treaty of 1905 would remain in force.

Questioned in the Diet on Oct. 19, 1951, over whether the word "Kurils" as used in the treaty included Etorufu and Kunashiri, the head of the Foreign Ministry Treaties Bureau, Kumao Nishimura, said unambiguously that both the northern Chishima and southern Chishima (Etorofu and Kunashiri) were included.
Some even insisted that southern Sakhalin (Karafuto), taken from czarist Russia after the Russo-Japan war of 1904-5, was also gained "peacefully." In particular, they were very unhappy about having to renounce all rights to the southern Kuril islands of Etorofu and Kunashiri, arguing that this "traditional territory" had never been controlled by Russia.
Be all that as it may, the U.S., which in 1951 had forced Japan to renounce all claim to the Kurils, including Etorofu and Kunashiri, in 1956 was able to threaten to turn Okinawa into a U.S. colony if Japan did not maintain all claim to the Kurils, including Etorufu and Kunashiri.

The soldiers had been at the mercy of the seas since the night of January 17 when their boat became crippled in a severe storm off Etorofu-to Island in the Kuriles, just north of the Japanese island of Hokkaido.
It is estimated they had drifted about 1,020 miles.

 Russia to build airport on Etorofu: Russian radio Asian Economic News - Find Articles
Russian authorities in Sakhalin plan to build a new airport on Etorofu, the biggest of the four Russian-held northern Pacific islands claimed by Japan, the Voice of Russia radio broadcast said.
The airport project, which Voice of Russia said will be completed in a few years, apparently serves as part of President Vladimir Putin's strategy to underline Russian ownership of the island.
According to Voice of Russia, Russian authorities also plan to build an airport on Paramushir, the northernmost island in the Kurils.

 ZNet |Japan | Ending the Russia-Japan Impasse: fresh thinking on the Kurils
The three islands only constitute 37% of the total, but Japan could give up Etorofu as a bitter legacy of World War II and a reminder of earlier leaders' serious political misjudgment -- a lesson for future Japanese politicians and the public.
This 37-63 split of the entire area of the disputed islands could be a win-win international resolution as well as a lose-lose result in the two countries' domestic politics, since giving up perceived sovereignty always goes against national sentiment.
Another reason to support such a solution is that since the three smaller islands -- Habomai, Shikotan and Kunashiri -- and the largest island -- Etorofu -- are administered by different local government organizations, it would be easier to redraw a national boundary between Kunashiri and Etorofu.

 The Hindu : Russia rejects Japan's claim on island
Vladimir Putin, in Irkutsk in March Moscow and Tokyo had basically agreed to launch talks on the return of Shikotan island and the Habomai islets with separate negotiations started for the larger Kunashiri and Etorofu islands.
``No agreement was ever reached to conduct separate consultations on terms of handing over the Smaller Kurile Chain (Shikotan and Habomai) and on the fate of the Kunashiri and Etorofu,'' said the Russian Foreign Ministry in a statement on Monday.
It recalled that the sides had agreed to pursue talks on the basis of the 1956 declaration, in which the former Soviet Union voiced ``readiness to hand over to Japan the Smaller Kurile Chain after a peace treaty has been signed''.

Sagoya and his bullyboys were by no means the only Japanese who were disturbed by Hatoyama's new-found willingness to agree to an interim peace settlement that would not commit Russia to return to Japan the southern Kuril islands of Etorofu and Kunashiri.
Earlier, the powerful businessmen who finance Hatoyama's Liberal-Democratic Party demanded that the Premier abandon the Moscow trip unless the Russians could be persuaded to give advance assurances that possession of Etorofu and Kunashiri would "continue to be the subject of negotiations" even after a peace settlement.
To pacify the businessmen, the Hatoyama government promptly sent Japan's Roving Ambassador Shunichi Matsumoto off; to Russia to seek such assurances.

Using the method of the modified joint hypocenter determination, we relocated foreshocks, a main shock and aftershocks of the 1995 off Etorofu earthquake simultaneously to study foreshock activities in detail in view of the nucleation process of the large earthquake.
Distribution of relocated earthquakes and their focal mechanisms suggest that the 1995 off Etorofu earthquake is an interplate earthquake at the boundary between the North America (or Okhotsk) and Pacific plates.
Its source area overlaps with those of the 1958 off Etorofu (m 8.1) and the 1963 Kurile (Mw 8.5) earthquakes.
