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.
Wasn't one of the issue was that Ishihara is buying senkaku in his capacity as Tokyo governor? So in other word, the one who owns Senkaku will be Tokyo instead of Ishihara personally.

Here is the news that indicate that.
