Misawa Air Base, located in Misawa, Aomori Prefecture, is used by the Japan Air Self-Defense Force, the United States Air Force, and the United States Navy. Hosting both Japanese and American troops, Misawa Air Base was used as a military base as early as 1870. The Imperial Army transformed Misawa into an airbase in 1938 and it saw heavy military use through 1941 to 1944 when it was used for research and development, as well as having facilities for Kamikaze Special Attack forces.


Please note that the base is not open to the public except during special events.
