Okinawa Times wrote that Okinawa Governor Tamaki is planning to hold news conferences at the Japan National Press Club on Oct. 31 and at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan on Nov. 9. The paper speculated that the governor is hoping to deliver to the rest of Japan and the world the Okinawan people’s message of opposition to the FRF construction at Henoko by speaking at the two major press venues.


In a related development, Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo wrote that Governor Tamaki visited on Monday a nursery school and an elementary school near MCAS Futenma where parts fell from U.S. military helicopters in December 2017. Okinawa Times quoted the governor as telling reporters afterward that he will call on the GOJ to keep its promise to suspend operations at the Futenma base by February 2019 as a separate issue from the FRF construction at Henoko.
