  Senkaku / Diaoyutai Islands
The Tiao Yu Tai islands (called "Senkaku" in Japanese) are a group of eight uninhabited islands on the continental shelf, separated from the Liu Chiu islands by a deep underwater trench.
Accordingly, the Senkaku Islands are not included in the territory which Japan renounced under Article II of the San Francisco Peace Treaty.
In July 1996, a Japanese group's establishment of a lighthouse on one of the Senkaku Islands sparked a wave of anti-Japanese protests, especially in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Like the Abukuma Foursome, Senkaku is one of Shishio’s overconfident, idiotic henchmen who is not strong enough to be in the Juppongatana.
Senkaku also kills the secret agent in the Shingetsu village (Eiji’s brother) and his two parents.
Senkaku is captured by the Meiji police force after his defeat at Kenshin’s hands but somehow escapes later on (although his escape is not explained).

As an underling of Shishio's, Senkaku was given authority to rule over the Shingetsu Village when he took it over by force with an army of men.
Senkaku is one who's ruthless; he'll kill anyone for any little reason.
From then on, Senkaku swore he'd be a different man. He saw Kenshin as the one who saved his life and showed him the way.

 Senkaku Islands Dispute: Handle with Care   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
A solution to the Senkaku Islands dispute is an intermediate A-level national interest that may be necessary to the human development of the Japanese people because of their growing dependency on foreign oil and the economic wealth it could bring.
A level-headed, clear description of regulations in the Senkaku Islands area could mean that the economic ventures of both countries can be realized in accordance with “conflict avoidance” thus producing the preferred outcome without a decision on sovereignty.
The Senkaku Islands are a great source of nationalistic pride for the Japanese and although this solution may not give them the sovereignty they seek like an international arbitrary court would, the Japanese people realize that their relationship with China is much more important than having a final winner and loser.

Senkaku is a massive conehead ^_- He is also Shishio Makoto's commander in charge of a small town which has a hot spring that Shishio uses to soothe his burned body.
An undercover agent was sent to the town to live with his family and report back to the government what Shishio was up to, but his true identity was discovered and he tried to flee with his younger brother Eiji.
Senkaku's massive body was not meant to take such force and eventually he tears his knee and falls to the ground.

 The U.S.-Japan Security Alliance and the PRC | The Senkaku Islands Crisis
The Senkaku Islands (in Japanese) or the Diaoyutai Islands (in Chinese) are a small group of five islands (Uotsuri, Kita Kojima, Minami Kojima, Kuba and Taisho), three reefs and some above-water rocks that lie about 200 kilometers northwest of Taiwan and 400 kilometers west of Okinawa, measuring a mere 10km2 of land.
The PRC claims the Senkaku Islands as their own based on a mass of historical evidence dating back to the 13th century.
The Senkaku Islands issue is one that lights the hottest of nationalist fires on both sides of the conflict.

 Diaoyu/Senkaku: To Whom do these Eight Isles Belong?
Whether you choose to call them the Senkaku islands, as do the Japanese, or refer to them by their Chinese name, the Diaoyu islands, one thing is clear: these eight islands rightfully belong to China.
It claims are based on the Senkaku's inclusion in the Ryukyu island chain, which includes Okinawa.
The Senkaku islands were included in the group of islands which the United States returned to Japanese authority in 1972.

 [No title]
At first I was thinking about making Senkaku a character who didn't speak, other than yelling "Gahhh!!" or "Guahhh!!" There hasn't been a character that didn't speak in Ruroken so far, and it would be a kind of experiment with an entirely new type of bad guy.
Senkaku after the change was just stupidly strong, exposed as cannon fodder.
I have many regrets about Senkaku, but for some reason he was really popular among my friends as the Ruroken "Sexy Dynamite" character (especially the crotch), so I guess that's some consolation.

 PINR - Senkaku/Diaoyu Island Dispute Threatens Amiability of Sino-Japanese Relations
n late March, a group of seven mainland Chinese activists landed on one of the disputed Senkaku/ Diaoyu Islands in an effort to solidify China's claim to the small island chain, triggering the latest in a growing trend of brief spats between Tokyo, Beijing, and, to a lesser extent, Taipei.
Located 170 kilometers northeast of Taipei and 410 kilometers west of Okinawa, this island chain has been the center of a growing territorial dispute between China, Taiwan, and Japan since the late 1960s, when a U.N. survey suggested oil may be found in the continental shelf atop which these islands sit.
While no development of oil resources under the Senkaku/ Diaoyu Islands is being seriously pursued at present, each party involved is eager to secure sovereignty over the islands as doing so will ensure tens of thousands of square kilometers of exclusive economic zone in the surrounding waters.

 Japan's Islands and China's Illicit Claims
The Senkaku Islands have been under the administrative control of the Government of Japan since having been returned as part of the reversion of Okinawa in 1972.
Clearly, though, the history of America’s quarter-century occupation of the Senkakus and international law are powerful evidence that the U.S. considers Japan’s claims to sovereignty as having merit.
The Senkaku seabeds that China now claims have been under the “sovereign” administration of either Japan or the United States for over a century.
