The Japanese army photographed the J-20 in the waters east of Taiwan? fake

A quick view.
The online adage, “Japan’s Self-Defence Forces captured Chinese military aircraft in the sea east of Taiwan-20,” is unconvincing. The photos are a combination of photos of the “Dang-20” at China’s 2021 International Air and Space Fair, and the photo of the drones in the 5-day document published by Japan’s Ministry of Defense’s Integrated Staff Department, which was later processed and collated. Event Background
The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) is currently conducting a training campaign in six regions around Taiwan.
On 5 August, a picture was circulated on social platforms, stating that the Japanese Self-Defence Forces had for the first time filmed Chinese national-born stealth-20s in the sea east of Taiwan.
On the lower right corner of the video, the words “Air Self-Defence Force photography” are used. Searching for information about “Japan Air Self-Defence Force Chinese military aircraft” can find a 5-day document on the website of the General Staff of the Ministry of Defence of Japan, entitled “The movement of Chinese aircraft”.

The document contains a picture of the Chinese BZK-005 reconnaissance drone, which is very similar to the background of the above-mentioned two images, the background parts of which overlap completely.
The picture of the BZK-005 reconnaissance drone can overlap completely with the background section of the web-based picture.
According to the document, on the morning and evening of 4 August, a Chinese reconnaissance drone (BZK-005) and a reconnaissance/attack drone (TB-001) came from the East China Sea, arrived in the Pacific Ocean through the mid-seas of Okinawa Island and Miyagu Island, Japan, and circled over the Pacific Ocean south of the Sakashima Islands, turning their heads and again over the middle sea of Okinawa and Miyagu Island, returning to the East Sea. There is no mention of anything related to the T-20 in the above-mentioned document. At present, there is no official response from China regarding the content of the document.
On 29 September 2021, Weibo, a friend of the North Wind @DS, released a similar view, the “Super-Hinding Pearl Exposition 20”, claiming that it was from DSHK and was authorized to publish it, at the 13th International Air and Space Fair of China in 2021 (also known as “The Pearl Fair”). @DS Northern Winds released "Super High Pixie Pearl Sea Exposition 20 Maps."
With the help of the image-processing software Photoshop, it can be observed that there is a near perfect overlap between @DSN North Wind, which adjusts the size of the warplane to the same proportion of images taken by the Japanese Self-Defence Forces.
This suggests that it is highly probable that the images on the 2021 Pearl Sea exposition were linked to the background of the photo of the drone in the 5-day document issued by the General Staff of the Ministry of Defence of Japan, which was later processed and collated.
An almost perfect overlap could be achieved by adjusting the size of the warplane to the same proportion of the images released by the @DS North Wind and the images taken by the Japanese Self-Defence Forces on the Internet.
As a result, it is not credible to say that the Japanese Self-Defence Forces captured Chinese military aircraft in the sea east of Taiwan.
