Welcome to Fleet Activities Yokosuka

Congratulations on your orders to Yokosuka, Japan. We are looking forward to having you aboard. You are about to embark on an exciting tour of duty in the fast paced seventh fleet area of operations. Yokosuka is an exciting place to live and is home to Commander Fleet Activities and our only permanently forward deployed carrier strike group. Yokosuka is located about 43 kilometers from Tokyo. There is much to see and do so your off duty time can be filled with many exciting adventures, please see our MWR page for more details and take advantage of all the region has to offer during your tour.

As the Command Master Chief, please allow me to assist you in ensuring a successful transition to your new home in Japan. If you’ve received your orders, it is our focus to ensure your sponsor is assigned and contacts you as soon as possible. If you have not been contacted by your sponsor email me at CFAY_CMD_SPONSOR@FE.NAVY.MIL. It is my conviction to make certain that you and your family are well taken care of. Proactive engagement on your part with your sponsor and our Ombudsman (, can solve many issues and concerns before you arrive onboard, thus paving the way for a smooth transition.
