Okinawa Prefecture is currently part of the Japan Fukuoka Mission. Recently-returned missionaries who served in Okinawa should register with the Japan Fukuoka Mission's alumni web site. Returned missionaries who served in Okinawa during other time periods, may register with whichever alumni site they feel the closest connection--either the Japan Fukuoka, the Japan Kobe or (possibly) the Northern Far East Mission alumni sites.

An effort is underway to create a unified alumni database that includes all RMs who have served in Japan.
