Yokota Officers’ Spouses’ Club to host Spring Asian Bazaar on May 3-4
Finish up your spring cleaning and make room for all the fabulous items available at this year’s Yokota Spring Asian Bazaar. Hosted by the Yokota Officers’ Spouses’ Club, the bazaar will be held May 3-4 at Hangar 15 on Yokota Air Base. It will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 3 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on May 4.
The bazaar, open to all SOFA personnel and their families, is an opportunity to purchase last-minute items before you PCS, or buy gifts for family and friends back in the States. You’ll have your pick of Japanese and Korean antiques, Asian furniture, home décor, jewelry, Kokeshi dolls, kimonos, obis, yukata and jinbei, local and regional handmade crafts.
And, of course, there will be food booths run by local private organizations.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the bazaar go back in to our community, base organizations, the Air Force community and even our Japanese community. Last year the YOSC gave out $69,000 to the community, including almost $16,000 in scholarships to high school seniors and spouses pursuing higher education degrees.
The YOSC is comprised of both military officer and civilian equivalent spouses. The purpose of the YOSC is to promote a spirit of unity through the provision of social, cultural, and welfare activities among members.
