Japan has Gamera and Ultraman protecting it. Sometimes Godzilla and Rodan have teamed up to defend Japan. And let's not forget about Mothra (if the natives can wake up the sleepy giant moth). These are formidable forces that both act act as deterrents and provide a powerful defense against invaders, including those from other galaxies. In light of this - no, US military bases are not necessary in Japan.
