P-3C 2 Kokutai Hachinohe, 27 October 1994.

Early morning photo of a part of the Orion ramp at Hachinohe. This base is in the north, on the main island of Honshu.

We were immediately spotted by a guard who was not amused and sent us away. It was time to continue to Misawa, which is only 20 km down the road.
