The island of Okinawa is in which country?

  • Japan correct

    If you're looking for a place to vacay this summer, you may want to steer clear of the little Japanese island Okinawa. Literally, tens of thousands of demonstrators have rallied in protest against the US military presence on the island after a former member of the Marine Corps employed as a civilian base worker allegedly raped and murdered a 20-year-old local woman in April. Takeshi Onaga, Okinawa's governor, has come to protest against the Marine Corps Air Station, insisting that it is time for Americans to get the Futenma out of there.
