How can you make a reservation for lodging at Yokota Air Base?

Yokota's Lodging Operation, the Kanto Lodge, is one of PACAF's largest hotel operations. Each year over 130,000 people are housed in the Kanto Lodge's six, on-base facilities.

As Yokota is the main aerial port of Western Pacific, it consistently operates at 96 to 100 percent occupancy. Most permanent change in station, or PCS, personnel and their families coming in and leaving Yokota Air Base stay at the Kanto Lodge's temporarily lodging facilities. Meeting the mission needs of the 374th Airlift Wing and the assorted tenant units, this provides constant challenges for the lodging staff. Frequent guests include a Strategic Intra-theatre Deployment (SID) mission consisting of aircrews and the 517th Air Logistics Squadron, which directly support the base's flying mission. The Kanto Lodge accommodates over one hundred Air Mobility Command aircrews and over one hundred distinguished visitors each month. The lodging staff consistently meets the needs of area exercises, conferences and training at Yokota.

It is advised that new members of the Yokota community immediately visit the family housing office upon arrival.
