 The U.S. Navy Kamiseya Communication Station (Seya and Asahi wards in Yokohama City) will be returned to Japan on June 30, 64 years after it was requisitioned. The total area to be returned is about 242 hectares, the largest parcel of land ever returned in Yokohama. After World War II, the U.S. military requisitioned the central part and port facilities of the city. The number of requisitioned facilities in the city was 112 (1,200 hectares) at the peak. The return of the Kamiseya station leaves four U.S. military facilities covering a total of 150 hectares remaining in the city. Among the four facilities, the Tsurumi Fuel Terminal (Tsurumi Ward) and the Yokohama North Dock (Kanagawa Ward) are not on the list of facilities to be returned as approved in the Japan-U.S. Joint Committee.
