LOCATION - Japan is an island nation located off the east coast of the Asian Continent.

Yokosuka City is located about 50 km (30 miles) southwest of Japan's capital city, Tokyo, on the east coast of the main island, Honshu. It is an industrial and residential community, with an area of about 100.67* square kilometers (39 square miles), and a population of about 425,078* (about 161,419 households*) as of February 1, 2006. (*Demographic information courtesy of Yokosuka City Hall, Statistics Branch.)

Fleet Activities Yokosuka is a 579 acre naval base occupying a small peninsula jutting into Tokyo Bay. An Ordnance Facility in nearby Urago, and on-base housing areas at Ikego and Negishi comprise another 850 acres of U.S. facilities.

As the home of the U.S. Navy's Seventh Fleet, Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka (CFAY), hosts 13 afloat commands and more than 50 other shore commands and tenant activities.

MISSION - CFAY's primary mission is to provide support services to forward deployed naval forces in Yokosuka, and other units assigned in the Western Pacific. Yokosuka Sailors take pride in setting the standard of "SERVICE TO THE FLEET" for the rest of the Navy.

Our role as ambassadors to Japan is something we take equally seriously. As residents of a joint-use naval base, and with almost 50 percent of our active duty and civilian population living off-base, we strive on a daily basis to improve the strength and quality of our ties to our host nation.

POPULATION SERVED - CFAY serves approximately 25,000 personnel. This figure includes Active Duty Members, Active Duty Family Members, Military Retirees and their Family Members, Civilian Employees, Japanese (MLC) and Other (IHA) Employees.
