They will be necessary for airfields such as Hyakuri and Chitose. I assume you'll be renting a car to get out to the bases? Most aren't easily accesible by train. If so, it should be much easier to find a place to purchase a ladder in the areas near the bases than in downtown Tokyo. I've done some shooting at bases there (mostly CTS), so let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Dana & Karl,
many thanks. I've been using a site - Japan Spotter Association to piece together the info I need on getting to & from places. I'm not only doing aviation on my trip, and being a solo traveller the cost of car rental in Japan is expensive when compared to the public transport options. My other option would be to take my steps with me from the UK, but again this might not be the most pratical option.
