Previously, several foreign media reported that under the special agreement due in March 2021, Japan needs to pay US $2 billion for US troops stationed in Japan. The U.S. wants to quadruple the amount of money in the new deal, or about $8 billion. At present, there are about 54000 US soldiers stationed in Japan, half of which are deployed at the US air base in Okinawa. Not only that, US Defense Secretary esper also said at the ROK-US security meeting on November 15 that South Korea should bear more defense costs for US forces stationed in South Korea. He said he hoped that the allies of the United States around the world would make greater contributions to defense costs.

According to Japanese media reports, Japanese government officials confirmed on November 16 that the U.S. asked Japan to quadruple the cost of U.S. troops in July, but Japan refused. According to the report, the Japanese side believed that the increase proposed by the US side was unrealistic and may be a part of the deal by President trump of the US, in order to test the Japanese attitude.

It is worth mentioning that, according to Japanese government sources, the Japanese government just reached an agreement with land owners on November 29 on mamao Island, a city in the west of Kagoshima County, to purchase the unmanned island for about 16 billion yen (about 1 billion yuan), as a transfer candidate for us carrier based aircraft on land simulation takeoff and landing training (fclp). According to the report released by MBC South Japan, the move was strongly protested by some local people, and even a liaison meeting against base construction was formed.
