Sasebo City

Sasebo City is located in Nagasaki Prefecture, on the island of Kyushu. The city is known for its famous resort, the Huis Ten Bosch, its proximity to the Kujuku Islands National Sea Park, and its long and amicable relationship with the neighboring U.S. naval base. On April 26, 2013, 30 trees  were planted at the Sasebo City Park. The event was officiated by Sasebo’s Mayor Tomonaga, and among the guests were the Consul for Public Affairs Mike Chadwick, representing the U.S. government and presenting the trees, and Commanding Officer Charles Rock of the CFAS U.S. Navy base, along with many other local dignitaries.  Sasebo is the host city for the base and its facilities, and CFAS was instrumental in assisting the city in arranging its plantings.  The dogwoods are planted in the beautiful public park as an enduring reminder to all local residents and visitors of the strength and durability of the friendship between the U.S. and Japan.
