Tour - Japan

Military aviation - April 2017


We will visit Japan again, during a two week tour from 15 to 30 April 2017. The focus of this trip will be on visiting the major part of the operational military air bases of Japan’s mainland (the islands of Hokkaido and Okinawa are not included in the trip). The tour will include a healthy mix of air force, army and navy air bases. The reports of our 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 tours picture perfectly what to expect. This tour can be described as a photo tour, focussing on opportunities for photography. This means that enough time is scheduled for the best pictures.
