U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy plans to visit Okinawa in mid-February, her first trip to the island prefecture with a sizable U.S. military presence since she assumed the post in November, bilateral relations sources said Wednesday.
The daughter of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy is expected to hold talks with local officials, including Okinawa Gov. Hirokazu Nakaima, during her visit amid controversy over a bilateral plan to move a U.S. Marine Corps base elsewhere in Okinawa.
