According to the Okinawa Prefectural Government (OPG), it has received over 2,000 written opinions from residents during the three weeks available for public inspection. An OPG official said, “It is probably the largest number of written opinions we have received on landfill projects in Okinawa.” This highlights public concern over the issue of the landfill at Henoko.
