Iruma Air Base (入間基地 Iruma-kichi?) (ICAO: RJTJ) is a Japan Air Self-Defense Force base located in the city of Sayama, Saitama Prefecture, north of western Tokyo, Japan. The base was previously a United States Air Force base named Johnson Air Base, and was established in 1937 as an Imperial Japanese Army Air Force and named Irumagawa Airfield. The base was taken over by U.S. forces during the occupation of Japan and renamed in honor of Gerald A. Johnson, a fighter ace killed in an air crash after the war.

Iruma Air Base is currently home to the Air Defence Command Headquarters Flight Group. Aircraft located at the base include the U-4, YS-11EA, YS-11EB, T-4, and EC-1.
