Early in 2014, a few of the bases on Okinawa changed their telephone policies, preventing people direct dialing from Japanese commercial phones to on-base DSN lines. Here is an updated list of instructions to call each military base on Okinawa. I’ve also included important military emergency numbers for quick reference.

To call a DSN from Off-Base

Substitute the following DSN numbers to direct dial from off-base including cell phones.

DSN 622-xxxx, dial 098-954-xxxx

DSN 622-xxxx, dial 098-954-xxxx

DSN 623-xxxx, dial 098-969-xxxx

DSN 632-xxxx, dial 098-962-xxxx

DSN 633-xxxx, dial 098-959-xxxx

DSN 634-xxxx, dial 098-961-xxxx

DSN 645-xxxx, dial 098-970-xxxx

DSN 646-xxxx, dial 098-971-xxxx
