    A Japanese survey team has visited a group of disputed islands in the East China Sea.

    The governor of Tokyo has a plan to buy some of the privately held islands and then hand them over to the Japanese government in order to strengthen that country's territorial claim.

    The Chinese government, however, says the islands belongs to China.
