Military

  • Basic allowance for housing (BAH) will be received with dependents based from location of your last permanent duty station (PDS), if they are not in government housing. If the dependents residence zip code is different than your last PDS your PCS orders need to be endorsed by your detaching administrative center authorizing you to receive the BAH rate of the actual residence zip code. (Refer to Joint Federal Travel Regulation (JFTR) U10408 Table U10E-6 Rule 1 and MCO 7220.56).
  • All E-6 and above rate COMRATS.
  • If you have been assigned to Camp Fuji, contact us in order to get a sponsor.
  • All military personnel are housed in either the BEQ (E-1 - E-5) or the BOQ (E-6 and above).
  • Cost of living allowance (COLA),  Overseas COLA Calculator, can be calculated by using the Locality Code by inputting our COLA Code: JP067.
  • Family separation allowance (FSA-R) for your dependents, will be received while you are stationed at Camp Fuji.

Civilian

To determine your LQA rates:

Living off installation

Accompanied service members and civilians must pursue housing off-base. There is no on-base housing at Camp Fuji. You must be aware that unlike larger installations which have communities used to a military presence, Camp Fuji remains a small installation with a relatively low need for external housing. As such, the market of larger/western sized home/apartment markets are NOT available in the vicinity.

What the approximate 30-minute driving radius to the base looks like.

  • Typically expect 2-3 month’s rent deposit, possibly 2-3 month’s rent key money, and one month’s rent agent fee.
  • The deposit is not covered by the LQA, non-refundable fees may be.
  • Utility bills (gas, water, sewage, electricity) are included in LQA, but personnel must retain all receipts/bills for end-of-year reconciliation. 
  • There is no housing office on installation; Okinawa and Atsugi do not provide guidance/support to civilians living in the area.
  • Japanese-speaking section coworkers may individually provide support
