The 42nd Anniversary JMSDF/MCAS Iwakuni Friendship Day 2018

February 2, 2018


Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni is pleased to announce our joint open-house, the JMSDF/MCAS Iwakuni Friendship Day, scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2018. This year marks the 42nd 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 sincere 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. The JMSDF/MCAS Iwakuni Friendship Day promises to be an entertaining, 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.
