The U.S.-Japan Security Treaty allows American military bases to exist in Japan. However, 75% of the land for such bases is appropriated from the southern islands of Okinawa Prefecture, an area which comprises less than 0.5% of Japan. The people of Okinawa who were made to sacrifice so much during World War II continue to oppose this situation.
