9. Schools: The DODDS schools on base all have websites that can be accessed from the CFAY website, www.cfay.navy.mil. This is the most accurate source of information for each school’s requirements. For preschool-aged children, there is the Yokosuka Co-op Preschool on base. Before your arrival, your sponsor can help put your child on the waiting list for attendance, so please don’t hesitate to ask.
10. Post Office Box: The main post office is located on Yokosuka Naval base with mini branches located at Ikego & Negishi. Many companies will ship to a FPO address; you just have to research it. You can still have things you can’t live without from the US! There are companies set up to assist military families by providing a physical address and re-shipping to the APO/FPO mailing address. APOBox.com is an example of one of these types of companies. (See the sample of stores that ship to FPO/APO for more info)
