eh, how would it block a legitimate land sale between private entities? Ishihara's funds were private donations, I don't see what legal grounds the government could've used to block the sale.

PRC on the other hand is a foreign state. No private citizen can simply just sell his land to be the territory of another country - I can sell my house tomorrow to any buyers if I wanted, but I'm pretty sure I can't sell it to Canada for it to become Canadian territory.

Never, it's why I keep a box of tuna in my house at all times, so I can throw them at the penguins to distract them as I run for my life!
