Okinawa Prefecture, a group of subtropical islands south west of Japan, is host to 33 US Military bases. This is approx. 232km2 housing 47, 300 US military personnel and their families. Some of these bases are located on remote islands. However, the majority of bases and its personnel are located on mainland Okinawa; a distinctive feature of the landscape is its borders, fences and walls.
