The panel asked the Environment Ministry incorporate some 3,700 hectares of forest area partly used as a U.S. training site into Yambaru National Park at the northern end of the main island of Okinawa. The U.S. returned the land in December 2016.

Adding the new land would bring the area covered by the park to about 20,000 hectares.
