Widow, 81, sole resident of remote island disputed by South Korea and Japan

Widow, 81, sole resident of remote island disputed by South Korea and Japan

In 1991, Kim Sin-yeol and her husband made the unusual decision to move to a lonely outcrop of islands at the heart of a long-standing territorial dispute between Japan and South Korea.Currently administered by Seoul, the Dokdo Islands are located in the the East Sea, according to South Korea.

Japan, however, calls the islands Takeshima and refers to their surrounding waters as the Sea of Japan.For years, the couple were the tiny islands’ only permanent residents, although other people, such as policeman, lighthouse operators and tourists, would periodically come and go.

Kim Sin-yeol, the sole permanent resident of the South Korean-administered Dokdo Islands, with her late husband.

Bad weather could cut the islands off from the outside world for weeks, but their surrounding waters were a rich fishing ground. Kim, who is originally from Jeju Island, worked as a “haenyeo” — a traditional, female freediver — until 2017 when poor health caused her to quit.

But since the death of her husband, Kim Sung-do, last October, the 81-year-old has been the only permanent resident on the volcanic islands.Her loss has not inspired any plans to move.”She said living on Dokdo is relaxing,” said her son-in-law, Kim Kyung-chul. “Being there, her mind is at ease.”

The disputed islands have long soured tense relations between the two historical adversaries, whose relationship is still colored by imperial Japan’s occupation and colonization of the Korean Peninsula in the first half of the 20th century.Japan says that South Korea is illegally occupying the rocky islands, which it claims have been its sovereign territory since the 17th century.

South Korea says its claim to the islands, believed to be home to underwater gas reserves, dates back to the sixth century.South Korea cemented its control over the islands in the 1950s, when it stationed armed guards there.

As Kim’s health falters, however, her daughter and son-in-law are planning to register as permanent residents of the isolated islands and live with the octogenarian.

Using a business license she inherited from her father, the younger Kim plans to sell stamps, soaps and seafood to tourists who make the four-hour ferry ride from the mainland.
