Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni is pleased to announce our joint open house, JMSDF/MCAS Iwakuni Friendship Day 2017 scheduled for Friday, May 5, 2017.

This year marks the 41st anniversary of Friendship Day and will combine both Fleet Air Wing 31 and MCAS Iwakuni in an exciting, fun-filled event, which will consist of both static displays and aerial performances.

As members of the greater Iwakuni community, it continues to be our great pleasure to open our gates, in concert with JMSDF, to the gracious people of our host nation in order to share our two cultures during Japanese Golden Week. JMSDF/MCAS Iwakuni Friendship Day 2017 promises to be a sensational, culturally enriching event for all involved.

Joint planning and coordination is ongoing, and the joint team will make additional details available as they are solidified. Until then, we request that the media withhold all queries seeking additional information about this outstanding, bilateral event.
