Welcome to Sasebo, the "Pearl of Japan"!  

Congratulations on your orders to Sasebo Japan and welcome onboard as a member of one of the best kept secrets of the Pacific. You are about to embark on an exciting tour of duty in the fast paced seventh fleet area of operations. Sasebo is an exciting place to live and is home to the only forward deployed Expeditionary Strike Group. From the “99” Islands to Mt. Aso, from fireworks to tea ceremonies, there is much to see and do in Sasebo and throughout Kyushu. Come with an open mind and enthusiasm to take advantage of all the region has to offer.

As the Command Master Chief, please allow me to assist you in ensuring a successful transition to your new home in Japan. If you’ve received your orders, it is our focus to ensure your sponsor is assigned and contacts you as soon as possible. If you have not been contacted by your sponsor email me at cfascmc@fe.navy.mil or see the Need a Sponsor? section. It is my conviction to make certain that you and your family are well taken care of. Proactive engagement on your part with your sponsor and our Ombudsman (cfasombudsman@hotmail.com), can solve many issues and concerns before you arrive onboard, thus paving the way for a smooth transition.

In addition, use the menu at the left to visit various pages of the Relocation Assistance section. The PCS Information and Support page should be particularly helpful with moving and directions to get from the airport to CFAS. The Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) has many helpful programs for the whole family, including the Area Orientation Brief/Inter-Cultural Relations class (AOB/ICR) that all new Sailors and adult family members must take upon arrival. Don’t miss the Housing Welcome Center page and don’t forget to check out what MWR has to offer.

Again, congratulations on your orders to Sasebo. You are on your way to the Pacific’s best kept secret…Fleet Activities Sasebo. Welcome Aboard Shipmates!!!

Sincerely,
Rudy Johnson
CFAS Command Master Chief
