I was stationed there years ago and wonder if any of you have any pictures that you can post of the place. ( not sure if you can ) But if so, I'd like to check them out.
I think I spent most of my free time in Nishi Tachikawa. After the Air Force I worked in Hachioji. Also my karate dojo was in Hachioji at the time. I wonder how the prices are in the Commisary these days. Used to be REAL cheap. Pack of smokes were like 2.57 a carton as I remember. Wine, Boones farm was only 57 cents a bottle back then. Our pay was low for E-4 but everything was not expensive either. I'm not familiar with Tama Hills . I mostly went to Shinjuku and Akasaka on the weekends. Met the wife in Akasaka. KiwiSimon is probably saying " maybe you shouldn't have gone there that weekend ".I am not staioned there, but I am there for work at least once a year.
I am on Yokosuka far more, but I am not stationed there either.
I am at an itty bitty base nestled between Yokohama and Yokosuka.
I dont think I have ever taken a pic on Yokota as it is more or less 'just a base' with nothing too exciting.
The new Aafes/Commisary is nice - but then again, it is just a 3 story building with parking on the roof.
I will try and remember to take some pics the next time I am there.
I have taken pic at Tama Hills if you ever went there while active duty.
