This chapter provides a microanalysis of the rhythms of everyday life on a Ground Self-Defense Force (GSDF) base. Specifically, it takes a close look at the internal mechanisms of a GSDF base through the lens of a week of basic training. Narrating this experience allows for the identification and introduction of some of the key sites, people, and issues that make up a base and characterize the everyday lives of Japanese service members.

Keywords:   Japanese military, Ground Self-Defense Force, service members, military personnel, basic training
