Okinawa is one of the southernmost islands in Japan. Which is home to Kadena and a few other military bases. It was site to one of if not the worst battles between Japan and the USA in WWII. The Japanese forces were so afraid of the US personnel that they instructed their civilian populous to commit suicide so that they would not be captured and tortured by the US forces. It is hard to fathom the amount of un-needed bloodshed was present on this island because of this horrible accusation. This is not the first time Okinawa had seen needles strife, as it was originally its own free nation, before Japan came to claim it. With all of this controversy around this island, it can be easy to understand why so many people believe that the place is haunted.
