The U.S. military base that appears to have been affected by the explosions is in Sagamihara, a city in north-central Kanagawa Prefecture, which borders Tokyo. It is the third most populous city in the prefecture.
In a Japanese Broadcasting Corp report, local authorities said that the blasts occurred at the Sagami General Depot, a U.S. Army post which is used to store petroleum products and ammunition.
