Events are useless. Settling the territorial dispute at the International Court of Justice is the only way to end this. Japan has requested SKorea to settle at the ICJ 3 times, and SKorea has refused. Japan needs to put the utmost pressure on SKorea to do so. The US should also apply pressure. Let the issue be settled in an objective international Court of Law.
