[place]* Located just outside of Tokyo in Kanagawa Prefecture, this US Army post is small, friendly, and has absolutely nothing to see.
In a Nutshell
The pre-war Imperial Japanese Army Academy, Camp Zama now hosts the UN Command (Rear) in addition to other US and Japan Ground SDF units.
What to See
The nearby city-town of Machida is a delightful little place and one of my favourites in Japan for its homely, happy feel. There is also a large shopping complex and an excellent arcade in Ebina, a few stops down to the west.
The base itself also has a number of fast food chains and a decent-sized commissary. But, in short... from a tourist point of view, there's isn't actually much to see.
What to Eat
Sobudai has a few wonderful ramen shops, and I did enjoy the food I had while there, but there's nothing particularly of note in the area. In Machida I ended up in a chuka-ryori chain.
About 40 minutes to an hour by train from Shinjuku station on the Odakyu line. Take a rapid or express train to Sagami-Ono or Machida and change for a local train.
Machida, Ebina and Sobudai are all connected by local trains. Just make sure you don't accidentally catch an express back to Tokyo.
Honestly, unless you are (or have friends or family) stationed at Camp Zama, you're not going to be coming here. But the food is decent, the people are nice, and shops and arcades abound.
US servicemen: everyone I met liked it here. If you just have to be stationed somewhere in the middle of nowhere... well, you could do far worse.
