JMSDF Tateyama airshow

Because the base is located in the remote point of Boso peninsula, the show is visited by small number of people.
This will give you a relief if you are tired of visiting airshows in Japan with crazy number of people.
Although the number of spectators are small, the show is great.
The JMSDF helicopter fly all day for review, demo and rides for civilians (chosen by lottery)

If you are interested in visiting this airshow or any other Japanese Airshow featured in this site, please refer to the page "Guide to Visiting Airshows in Japan"
