FILE - This June 2011 file photo shows Uotsuri Island, one of the islands of Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese, in the East China Sea. Tokyo officials are set to head by boat Saturday night, Sept. 1, 2012 to the tiny islands controlled by Japan but claimed by China and Taiwan to carry out a survey before buying the islands, heating up a longtime territorial dispute. Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara has already raised 1.45 billion yen ($19 million) in donations to buy the islands from Japanese owners.
