 Setagaya Ward Mayor Nobuto Hosaka expressed concerns about the deployment of the Osprey transport aircraft in the Yokota Air Force Base during a plenary session of the assembly on June 17.

 

 He responded to a question from Minoru Sakurai, a ward assembly member from the Japanese Communist Party.

 

 He referred to mounting concerns about the possibility of serious accidents expressed by local communities in Fussa and five other municipalities, which host the base, and said: “As the head of a local government in the same Tokyo metropolitan district, I am deeply worried and share their concerns.”
