You probably didn’t know that the Okinawan government has an office in DC. Their main mission is to inform American federal staff, Congress, and the American people of what is happening regarding the relationship between Okinawan people and the U.S. military bases on Okinawa. Okinawa represents 0.6% of Japan, but hosts over 70% of the U.S. exclusive military bases in Japan. The office also has been building closer ties with Okinawan communities in the U.S. The Okinawan communities were present at the Cherry Blossom Festival and performed on stage.
