In fact Japan's claim over Ryukyu is a violation of the Potsdam Declaration and Japan's Instrument of Surrender.

In the Potsdam Declaration, it is clearly stated that:

"Japanese sovereignty shall be limited to the islands of Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, Shikoku and such minor islands as we determine."

And in the Japanese Instrument of Surrender, it is clearly stated that:

"We, acting by command of and in behalf of the Emperor of Japan, the Japanese Government and the Japanese imperial General Headquarters, hereby accept the provisions set forth in the declaration issued by the heads of the Governments of the United States, China and Great Britain on 26 July 1945, at Potsdam, and subsequently adhered to by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which four powers are hereafter referred to as the Allied Powers.

We hereby proclaim the unconditional surrender to the Allied Powers of the Japanese Imperial General Headquarters and of all Japanese armed forces and all armed forces under Japanese control wherever situated."

In that case, it's more absurd for Japan to pay the invader to move out then.  
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.

It simply means the money paid is a form of bribery.
