The JC went to Yokuska, Japan on the way home in 1966 because the Captain (Fred Bailey) learned that she had never made a port call in Japan. He then requested a shipyard availability in Yokosuka which was granted. But as the ship approached Yokosuka he tabled all of the work orders so the crew could enjoy some R&R in Japan after a hard deployment.  It also turned out to be a favorite liberty port for the Captain. He, the officers and crew all had a great time. Dennis Hager
