- Volunteers from Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka (CFAY) and tenant commands teamed up to celebrate and be a part of Yokosuka Citys 43rd annual Mikoshi Parade and Festival, Oct. 20. Several booths were set up along the route by the various commands and organizations on base offering the nearly 10-thousand visitors food, drink and clothing items such as t-shirts commemorating the day. Akira and Erina Hidaka from Toda City of Saitama Prefecture visited with their two children. It was Akiras second time on the base after coming to Friendship Day earlier in the year, and it was Erinas first time. I have (had) a lot of fun here, Erina said. We had fried chicken, French fries and turkey legs. Lots of fun! CFAY provides, maintains, and operates base facilities and services in support of the U.S. 7th Fleet's forward-deployed naval forces, 71 tenant commands, and more than 27,000 military and civilian personnel and their families.
