    There are a couple different ways to look at it. Okinawa Prefecture is a governmental unit larger than a city or town and encompasses many islands. One of these islands is Okinawa Island. If you choose to do your project on this island, it will be important to make sure the information you gather is from that specific island and not just the prefecture.
