Your military supervisor (commanding officer? Sorry, I'm not up on my military lingo) should have the answers to this, and the Yokusuka website should also explain it. I would find it very hard to believe they would say okay, bring your bike over, and then you find you can't register it. So, if you can bring it, you shouldn't have any problem.
You will deal with the Yokohama Land Transportation Office. The Yokosuka guys have staff that deal with the LTO so that you don't have to deal with the Japanese directly.
How do I know all this? I was at Yokosuka by invitation by a friend who is stationed there, and I saw plenty of large sportbikes on the base with Japanese license plates. So, it must be pretty easy.
Better to be an idiot than a crook.
