Senaha Communication Site
In the past, the Senaha Communication Site was a large military base occupying the western coastal region of Yomitan village. However, it is now a small base consisting of only a steel tower and a building used for communication. A large portion of the area is used for tacit farming. In the back are Cape Zanpa park, a hotel, and a golf course which mark a successful return of the site.
The United States and Japan released the Final Report of the Special Action Committee on Okinawa on December 2, 1996. The report made 27 recommendations to reduce the impact of the U.S. military presence on the Okinawan people. This included the return of Senaha Communication Station (approx. 61 ha/151 acres) with the intention to finish the process by the end of March 2001 after the antenna facilities and associated support facilities are relocated to Torii Communication Station. However, the microwave tower portion (approx.- 0. l ha/0.3 acres) will be retained.
