Asahi claimed that the Defense Ministry has decided to provisionally deploy at SDF Camp Kisarazu in Chiba Prefecture a fleet of MV-22s that the GSDF plans to procure given that the original plan to base them at Saga Airport has run into difficulties due to local opposition. While MOD officials are reportedly planning to brief the local municipal government in the near future on the provisional deployment, concern may grow among local residents that the municipality may end up hosting the Ospreys indefinitely.
