Japan administered the islands in the 1800’s. USA, after occupying japan, returned them to japan.

If anything, the taiwan government has more of a claim than china. China has zero claim. But of the three, japan has more of a claim.

Also being the most recent owner tends to be how the world works. Native americans havent been given back america. Its impossible to go back in time. End of the day, the current administrator is japan.
