Located at the southern tip of Formosa (120.723E 22.046N), Hengchun was an important airfield for the short-ranged Japanese Army fighters in their assault on the Philippine Islands. At the time war broke out, 50 Air Regiment (36 Ki-27 Nate) was based at the airfield.

Hengchun has a definite monsoon season, with a dry winter and spring followed by torrential rains in summer and autumn. It is also subject to fog.
