South Korea on Monday began two days of war games to practice defending the disputed Dokdo islands off its east coast against an attack by Japan.
Seoul has controlled the islets in the Sea of Japan (East Sea) since the end of Japanese colonial rule on the Korean peninsula. Tokyo also claims the islands, known as Takeshima in Japan, accusing Seoul of occupying them illegally.

Once again, Natural resources.  If Japan owns the islands, they own the sea around them up to a certain distance, including any natural gas taken from the sea floor.

Dokdo islands, As of February 2017, there are two civilian residents, two government officials, six lighthouse managers, and 40 members of the coast guard living on the islets.
The total area of the islets is about 187,554 square metres (46.346 acres), with their highest point at 168.5 metres (553 ft) on the West Islet.

  In 2007, two desalinization plants were built capable of producing 28 tons of clean water every day. South Korean telecommunications companies have installed cellular telephone towers on the islets.

  North Korea and South Korea agree that the islands are Korean territory and reject Japan's claim...
There are almost 100,000 tourist visits a year.
