Offshore construction work starts in Nago
-- The Japanese government launched offshore construction work on Feb. 6, 2017, to build a replacement facility for a U.S. Marine base in Okinawa amid strong local opposition. The work is part of the central government's plan to relocate the U.S. Marine Corps' Air Station Futenma from a densely populated area of Ginowan to the Henoko coastal area in Nago, both in the southern island prefecture.
