In 1936 the Imperial Army made the arsenal a separate activity and renamed it Sagami Army Arsenal. The primary function was manufacturing armaments and weapons, mostly tanks, for the Japanese Army. Sagami Depot was also the test bed for the development of the 120-ton “O-I” experimental heavy tank as well as manufacturing balloon incendiary devices which Japanese forces launched from Chiba to start fires in the west coast region of the U.S.In September 1945, Sagami was occupied by the U.S. Army 5th Cavalry Regiment. The installation played a major role in the support of U.S. forces during the Korean War. In 1957 the Army began to scale back operations at Sagami General Depot and U.S. Army Supply and Maintenance Activity (which performed maintenance and repair of heavy equipment and tanks) was inactivated after the Vietnam Conflict. Today, the installation continues to be used as a U.S. Army logistics and supply facility continuing to honor its commitment to Japan’s defense. From 1935 to the end of World War II, this location was known as the Sagami Army Arsenal, where Mitsubishi developed and manufactured tanks for use by the Imperial Japanese Army.
