I lived in Ninomiya and was out jogging one evening. Saw an American at the gate of the Landing Facility and talked with him briefly. This was in 1992 or 1993. It looked like a cool place to work. I was Satcom in Japan for 8 1/2 years and then have been working in the US as an IT professional. Our teletypes likely used these cables. Would like to know if the facility still exists and where can I apply? I loved Japan.

Good experience and memory. The facility should still exist there.
