Welcome aboard Naval Air Facility Atsugi. Download your Welcome Aboard Packet and go to NAF Atsugi Booklet to get started.
Upon arrival, service members are required to report to their individual command. If your command is deployed, please call the NAF Atsugi command quarterdeck at DSN 264-2433 or CDO 080-9207-7867.
Visit the Fleet and Family Support Center in building 949. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The FFSC can be contacted at DSN 264-3372 or internationally from the U.S. at 011 81 467 63 3372 or by email at M-AT-FFSC-DutyOffice@fe.navy.mil
All incoming personnel must sign up for the Area Orientation Briefing and Intercultural Relations session, a mandatory indoctrination as directed by the NAF Atsugi commanding officer. As of July 1, 2006, all personnel assigned to NAF Atsugi and its tenant commands are required to attend the AOB/ICR course in addition to the Driver's Safety/License class in order to receive a status of forces agreement driver's license. No one will be issued a SOFA driver's license until they have completed the proper requirements and passed the written exam. This applies to all active-duty service members, Department of Defense civilians, DOD Education Activity personnel, civilian contractors and their family members. It is recommended that you register as soon as possible. COMNAVFORJAPANINST 1740.5
Reservations for the AOB/ICR session can be made by your sponsor at the FFSC up to six months in advance of your arrival. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed in the classroom. Personnel are required to be appointment-free the week of AOB/ICR. Reservations can also be made in advance at the Child Development Center for day care if needed. For more information, please call NAF Atsugi FFSC at DSN 315-264-3372 or internationally from the U.S. at 011 81 467 63 3372.
Once you have received orders to NAF Atsugi, you should be contacted by a command sponsor from your new command. If for some reason you have not received an email or phone call from your sponsor, please reach out to your new command and ask to speak with the command sponsorship coordinator.
Command sponsors can provide you with important information and tips on traveling and lodging, can assist with reservations for lodging and for child care at the Child Development Center, as well as enrollment in the AOB/ICR. Advance reservations are vital to ensure the CDC has the appropriate staff available for that week.
Please note that at least one parent must attend the CDC orientation prior to enrolling your child in daycare.
Additionally, your command sponsor can give important advice to help you make well-informed decisions on topics such as bringing your privately-owned vehicle, household goods and appliances or pets and can provide information about living in town versus living on base.
Again, if you have not been contacted by your sponsor within a few weeks of receiving orders, please reach out to your command to be assigned a sponsor.
