  1. How do I travel from Yokota AB to Camp Zama? (Current as of Sep 10) -- See this Flyer with Instructions.
  2. How do I travel from Yokota AB to Hardy Barracks? (Current as of Oct 10)
    1. Services run a shuttle from Yokota AB to New Sanno/Hardy Barracks twice a day – cost approx $8 per person - not sure if it runs weekends, but Kanto Lodge and New Sanno can fill in the blanks and New Sanno staff are happy to hail and direct a taxi if you get the shuttle that doesn't go all the way to HB.
    2. Here's how to use the train and subway to get to Hardy Barracks:
    3. From Yokota's air terminal, catch the on-base shuttle bus to the main gate. From there, you can walk to the train station, or take a rather short taxi ride (ask the gate guard to point you in the right direction for Fussa Eki (Fussa Station)).
    4. At the station, use the ticket vending machine, for a ticket to Harajuku Eki (there should be a map above the ticket machines, showing stations -- look for Shinjuku, then look south to Harajuku; the map will also show you the amount of fare to put into the machine).
    5. Take the train from Fussa to Tachikawa. At Tachikawa, transfer to the Chuo Line for Shinjuku.
    6. At Shinjuku, you will change trains again. Look for the Yamanote Line. Your train should be on track number 12 -- it will show the next station down the line to be Yoyogi. You will go to the second station, Harajuku.
    7. Be sure to keep your tickets with you. Whenever you encounter a gate, put your ticket in the slot, and be sure to pick it up when it reappears at the top of the mechanism.
    8. When you get to Harajuku, exit from the station, and look across the street for the Snoopy Store. If you see that, you've come out the correct exit. Don't cross the street, but go to your right, to the subway (there will be an obvious entrance going down, from the sidewalk). You are at Meiji Jinju-Mae ("front of Meiji Shrine") station for the subway. At the ticket vending machine, look 2 stations down, and that's your fare (I can't remember whether the map has the station names in English).
    9. You will be going 2 stops, to Nogizaka. The first stop (and you should see it on the platform sign) is Omotesando (a nice shopping area, by the way). When you reach Nogizaka, walk toward the rear of the train, and take that exit from the station, up to the street.
    10. From here, you may walk (about 15 minutes, depending on speed and suitcase burden), or you could take a taxi.
    11. Look to your left when you reach the street, and you should see a traffic tunnel (if you don't see this tunnel, you've taken the wrong exit). Walk through the tunnel, and go to the right as soon as you exit from the tunnel (it is a "T" intersection, in any event). As you are walking, you will see the small military complex on your right. You will see an entrance post, and that's where you pass into the complex. The lodging is to your left after you enter the base.
    12. A taxi driver might not know "Hardy Barracks," so you could ask to be taken to the cemetery, "Aoyama Bochi," which is across the street from the lodging. Look for a ramen hut on one corner, and an Irish pub diagonally across the street, and, of course, the 3-story billet.
  3. How Do I process through out through Japanese Immigration at Yokota? (As of Mar 09)
    1. The Japanese immigration office at Yokota is located a short walk (approx 15-20 minutes each way) from the terminal. To get there, go left out of the terminal toward the gate. Take the crosswalk toward the gate. Remain on the sidewalk inside the rails. Continue on and stay left until you see the foot bridge across Route 16. Cross the bridge and go to the gate on the other side of Route 16. Take the cross walk to the other side of the gate and go out the gate. Follow the sidewalk to the left about 200 yards to the end of the fence, to the left about 50 ft. is the small immigration building (0500 to 2200 7 days a week).
    2. Warning: The stamp out is only good for the calendar date of the stamp. For example, if you go to immigration and receive a stamp dated 13 Mar 09, it is only valid for THAT day. The stamp is no longer valid for the next day. If you wish to stand a Space "A" roll call for a flight leaving early in the morning the next day, you may go to immigration the day prior and get your passport stamped with "tomorrow's date", however you would not be able to leave the day prior.
    3. The terminal rules require that you declare yourself present before roll call and be travel ready at roll call, stamped out, all documents in order, bags at hand and checked out of billeting. After selection, you will proceed directly to check in and get a boarding pass. You will not be allowed to leave the terminal after selection for a flight. Check with the Pax Reps if this is still the procedure as there have been reports of folks clearing immigration after being selected for a flight.
