Japan Self-Defense Force members, Numazu residents, and U.S. Marines pull a rope during the annual Dragnet Festival June 1 at Numazu Beach, Japan. The event was centered on the Japanese tradition of dragnet fishing in which a massive net is towed into Suruga Bay and then dragged inland by hand. The festival brings JSDF members, prefectural residents and Marines together for a day of fun at the beach where they enjoyed fresh seafood, played games, and relaxed on the beach, according to Col. Blake M. Wilson, the commanding officer of Combined Arms Training Center Camp Fuji. - Japan Self-Defense Force members, Numazu residents, and U.S. Marines pull a rope during the annual Dragnet Festival June 1 at Numazu Beach, Japan.

Wasaku Tatsumichi, right, demonstrates for Pfc. Michael Cancel, left, how to properly plant rice May 4 at Tatsumichi’s rice field in Gotemba, Shizuoka prefecture, Japan. Cancel, along with approximately 20 other Marines assigned to Combined Arms Training Center Camp Fuji, volunteered to help Tatsumichi plant his rice for the spring. The event benefited both Tatsumichi and the Marines because he got his field planted quickly, and the Marines experienced what it is like to be a Japanese rice farmer for the day. Tatsumichi is a member of the Fuji U.S.-Japan Friendship Association and a rice farmer. Cancel is a motor vehicle operator with Headquarters Company, CATC Camp Fuji.(U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl.
