It is with deep regret that we inform you that the Yokota Spouses' Club Asian Bazaar has been postponed until a later date. This decision was not made without deep and continuous consideration by base officials.

As soon as we have a new date or additional information to share, we will update our social media sites and webpage: www.yokotaspousesclub.com.

Thank you everyone, for your support!

YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan – The Yokota Spouses' Club (YSC) will host their annual spring bazaar at the Taiyo Community Center on March 21 – 22. Local and regional vendors in Japan and across the Pacific have the opportunity to showcase Japanese and Korean antiques, Asian furniture, jewelry, art, rugs, prints, novelties, ceramics, and much more to the community – all under one roof! The bazaar is open to all SOFA-sponsored personnel and their families.

All of the YSC’s proceeds from bazaar sales are donated directly back to the Yokota community. The YSC historically contributes over $30,000 annually to scholarships and community organizations across the installation regardless of branch, rank, and military or civilian status.

This year’s event will offer more than 50 vendors as well as home-based businesses operating on Yokota.

The event takes place from 9 AM to 6 PM on Saturday, and from 10 AM to 4 PM on Sunday. Delivery services will be available to transport large furniture purchases. Additionally, volunteer translators will be on hand to assist with sales transactions, and the like. For payments, US dollars or credit cards will be accepted.

The bazaar is a tremendous community effort and requires the support of base agencies as well as hundreds of volunteers over months of planning. Additional volunteers are needed for the event to assist with vendor transportation, vendor lounge donations, cashiers, etc. Volunteers are eligible for early shopping privileges as well as door prizes.

For more information about the bazaar, to include the opportunity for prize drawings, follow the Facebook page @YokotaSpousesClubAsianBazaar for periodic updates.

The purpose of the YSC is to promote a spirit of unity through the provision of social, cultural, and welfare activities among its members. The club is comprised of military officer, enlisted and civilian spouses.
