sponsorship & advertising

commercial sponsorship

MCAS Iwakuni is located in western Japan, roughly an hour southwest of Hiroshima City. It is the home of nearly 6,000 US Marines, Sailors, civilians and their families, and is expanding in size every year. Additionally, the station employs about 10,000 Japanese military and civilians.

MCCS Iwakuni provides support services for the community, including restaurants, recreation/entertainment/shopping facilities, and outreach services.

Sponsorship with MCCS does more than advertise your products or services to the community; sponsorship is a means to connect genuinely with your customers. Memories are created, and your brand is associated with producing those memories.

We have many possibilities for sponsorship with different target audiences and objectives/contents as follows:

  • cultural exchanges / friendship day

  • cultural / memorial events
  • athletic events & fitness runs
  • bazaars
  • entertainment / concerts

  • us & japanese (on & off base)

friendship day

MCAS Iwakuni opens its gates for our Friendship Day Air Show to unite our host nation and U.S. forces.

Friendship Day strengthens our shared community with Japan through engaging activities, American culture, family entertainment, and of course, plenty of aircraft.

More than 200K+ aircraft enthusiasts converged on the flight line every May 5th for this spectacular display and stunts showcasing the raw power of aviation.

Sponsorship is a means to truly connect with your customers.
