Kadena Air Base Airport

Where is Kadena Air Base Airport?  

DNA Kadena Air Base Airport (嘉手納飛行場, Kadena Hikōjō?), (IATA: DNA, ICAO: RODN) is a United States Air Force base located in the towns of Kadena and Chatan and the city of Okinawa, in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. Kadena Air Base is the hub of U.S. airpower in the Pacific, and home to the USAF's 18th Wing and a variety of associate units.

The military contracted flight "The Patriot Express" lands at Kadena AB's AMC flight terminal. Your sponsor should meet you at the AMC Terminal to transport you to the Shogun Inn registration desk. If your sponsor does not meet you at the AMC terminal, you may call the Shogun Inn registration desk for shuttle service. The Shogun Inn operates shuttle service daily from 0520 to 1130. If you arrive after hours, you may call 99-939-1660 for a taxi on base. On base taxis accept only JPY (Japanese Yen), not US Dollars.

If you were routed through mainland Japan, you will arrive at the domestic terminal. If you have Yen, you can use a pay phone and call 938-1111, then after the dial tone, dial the base phone number. Once in Naha, the Naha International terminal has a DSN line available at the Information Booth.

Okinawa Naha International Airport (OKA) is the commercial airport where you will arrive if you are not flying on the military contracted flight. Naha International is located approximately 45 minutes to 1.5 hours from Kadena AB depending upon traffic. It is very important to make sure you have contact with your sponsor prior to arriving in Okinawa so someone will be available to meet you at the airport and assist you with processing into the base. If your sponsor has not arranged transportation for you, there are transportation options available.
