Iruma Air Base opens its gates to the public on November’s Culture Day national holiday. The Japan Air Self-Defence Force will show off a wide range of its finest airplanes, including the F-15, the Ground Self-Defence Force will stage a parachute drop and then the Blue Impulse JASDF aerobatic demonstration team will provide the highlight of the show.
The event will take place rain or shine and you should expect huge crowds. The base advises against trying to park in the area. Gates open at 8am and the show is from 9.30am until 3pm.
