Original title: An uninhabited island in Hokkaido disappeared from the air: the territorial sea has shrunk

Overseas network on October 31, according to Hokkaido News reported on the 31st, after observation, the "nose north island" that was confirmed to be located in the waters of the village of Zonggu in Japan has disappeared recently. The news was reported by local residents to the Maritime Security Headquarters of the first district of Otaru, Hokkaido. The headquarters said that "it may be destroyed by the erosion of waves or water flow" and will be investigated in the near future.

According to the United Nations Treaty on the Law of the Sea, the island is defined as not being completely submerged by water even if it rises. If the "nose north island" really disappears, it means that Japan's territorial waters have shrunk.

The scope of the territorial sea is determined based on the number of meters off the island. The island was once located 500 meters away from the village, and was named by the country in 2014. It is one of the 158 uninhabited islands in Japan and is clearly owned by Japan.

Kohara Yoshihiko, who is in charge of the development of the surrounding waters, said that from the land, the island could not be seen by the naked eye, and the fishermen sailing in the nearby waters could not see it from the fishing boat. Some older fishermen say "from the 1950s (around the 1970s), there are small islands around."

According to Japanese authorities, the island was discovered and measured in 1987, which was 1.4 meters above the average sea level. These data are clearly recorded in the maps of Japan's chart and the National Land Institute.
