 The Okinawa Prefectural Board of Education designated on June 30 a stone found at the site in Henoko, Nago City, to which the government plans to relocate the U.S. Marine Corps’ Futenma Air Station, as a cultural asset of “an anchor-stone.”

 

 Nago City plans to ask the U.S. military for an excavation of the site inside Camp Schwab where the stone was found. If the excavation request is approved, the relocation work would be delayed further.
