The purpose of it is what the military calls "joint and bilateral interoperability." It means that the Americans can integrate well with their Japanese counterparts, and that different branches of the U.S.military can integrate well with each other.The ability to work together is especially important, considering the short tours of single U.S. troops in Japan. One of the key benefits of the exercise is the opportunity for pilots to compete against dissimilar aircraft. The United States holds a similar annual exercise, called Foal Eagle, with South Korean troops.

impossible on the tiny plots of arable land squeezed between Japan's many mountains.
