Etajima base (JMSDF Etajima Naval Base) in Etajima city, Hiroshima prefecture is located in the Etajima-cho government building and is the base of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. Beside the housing the 1st Technical School and the Officer Candidates School, it is home to the local Kure Naval District, LCAC training facilities, and the Self Defense Force oil storage. In addition, the Special Forces of the Maritime Self Defense Force is located here. The predecessor of the Etajima base was the branch officer training system of the Imperial Japanese Naval Academy. The Naval Academy moved to Etajima from Tsukiji, Tokyo in 1888. Prior to World War II, Britannia Royal Naval College and United States Naval Academy were called the “Worldwide 3 large service academies”. Many of the facilities of the Naval Academy are currently used by the 1st Technical School and the Officer Candidate School.
