The Naha Port Facility, formerly the Naha Military Port, is a United States Forces Japan facility located in Naha, Okinawa, Japan, at the mouth of Kokuba River (国場川 Kokuba-gawa?), which flows into the East China Sea.[1]

The Naha Military Port was constructed by the U.S. troops after their landing on Okinawa Island in 1945. It served as a logistic base during the Vietnam War.[2] After the reversion of Okinawa from the United States to Japan in 1972, return of the land to the government of Japan was agreed at the 15th U.S.-Japan Security Consultative Committee held in 1974.[1] A part of the land has been returned and the remaining land will be returned after the completion of planned move of the facility to Urasoe, Okinawa.[1]
