Media Advisory (2014 Friendship Day)
April 22, 2014

MCAS Iwakuni will hold its annual Friendship Day here May 5. As in the past, the MCAS Iwakuni Public Affairs Office will host a media opportunity for representatives who wish to visit the day’s attractions prior to the event starting at 10 a.m.

Due to the heavy vehicular traffic anticipated on May 5, privately-owned vehicles are prohibited. Also, all bicycle traffic must enter through the main gate.

PAO will meet the media representatives at 8:30 a.m. at the Monzen gate. Be advised not to forget to have your I.D. with you. Deadline for registration for the early morning media opportunity is April 28 at noon. Please confirm your registration with a follow-up phone call. A signed Friendship Day Media Ground Rules (PDF / MS Word) sheet must be attached for each person attending.

If you wish to visit the event later in the day, please check-in at the media tent, which is referenced in the attachment. When you visit the media tent, we will issue you a media badge as well as provide you the most updated event information. Please de-register with the media tent and turn in your badge when you are ready to leave the air station.  Thank you for your cooperation.
