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, covering 100.58 square kilometers (39 square miles), with a population of about 429,152 (as of February 1, 1998).
Fleet Activities Yokosuka is a 579 acre naval base occupying a small peninsula jutting into Tokyo Bay. An Ordnance Facility in nearby Urago, and off-base housing areas at Negishi and Ikego comprise another 850 acres of U.S. facilities.
As the home of the U.S. Navy's Seventh Fleet, the Base, often referred to as CFAY (Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka), hosts 13 afloat commands and more than 50 other shore commands and tenant activities. 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.
