 Organization

Historical Note

Yokota Air Force Base is a United States Air Force (USAF) and Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) base in the city of Fussa, a city in the Tama Area, or Western Tokyo. The facility which houses Yokota Air Base was originally constructed by the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) in 1940 as Tama Airfield, and used as a flight test center. During World War II Yokota became the center of Japanese Army Air Forces flight test activities and the base was the site of the first meeting between Japanese and Italian wartime allies.
