U.S. Navy Sailors with the Naval Air Facility-Misawa march with 50 state flags during the 28th Annual American Day parade in Misawa City, Japan, June 5, 2016. Events like these are important as they afford Misawa neighbors, American and Japanese alike, opportunities to interact in a relaxed environment specifically planned for building friendships. More than 80,000 attendees enjoyed live performances, including Sublime with Rome, indulge in American and Japanese cuisine and to strengthen international bonds.
