Living environment

Because Okinawa Prefecture contains the largest U.S. military base in the Far East, there are over 50,000 foreign residents (including civilian employees of the military). Because of this, there is a considerable volume of housing for U.S. military officers and other foreigners in the area, as well as an international school, hospitals where patients can be served in foreign languages and other facilities that create a comfortable living environment for people not originally from Japan.
