Japan to Renew Subsidies for Municipalities That Host US Military Exercises

1 min read

The defense ministry of Japan has proposed nearly $30.7 million in new subsidies for municipalities that allow U.S. forces to conduct tactical drills, The Mainichi reported Tuesday.

Japan will award the new subsidies once the U.S. military realignment fund for local governments expires in March 2017, according to the report.

The report said the U.S. and Japan signed an agreement in 2006 to transfer combat exercises from U.S. military bases in Kadena, Misawa and Iwakuni to the Japanese air self-defense force’s six bases in Chitose, Misawa and Hyakuri, Komatsu, Tsuiki and Nyutabaru.

Japan has subsidized municipalities that host U.S. military drills around JASDF bases since 2007, Mainichi reports.
