Army.mil/risingsun is managed by the U.S. Army Garrison Japan Public Affairs Office to help keep the Army community in Japan informed about what is happening at Army installations across Japan.
The United States Army Garrison Japan and its 16 supported installation sites are located in the island of Honshu and Okinawa in Japan. The USAG Japan mission is to support the Headquarters, U.S. Army Japan / I Corps (fwd) to ensure mission readiness and the quality of life of the Army community in Japan.
The USAG Japan area of responsibility spans 1,500 miles from north to south of Japan.

The Camp Zama base cluster includes Sagamihara Housing Area and Sagami General Depot.
