  • ICU has attracted the spotlight on the topic of Mako, (International Christian University), in close proximity to the National Observatory. Advance registration is required is that the Planetarium is a must-see. Just walk it is. Also noodle shop located near (mitaka station) is good, just working days and hours may well not. After examining all means please.

  • Located in mitaka city, did you know on TV, but I don't. Exhibits such as old telescopes and exhibition room, should be done once.

  • Excellent place for star gazers! You can book the facility for star gazing party and you can check their 20 inch telescope
  • Excellent facility with a lot of astronomical items of the past to see. The guard at the Gate House was very friendly and gave us some brochures. He actually came running after us a few minutes later when he realised he gave us the wrong language. I wish guards in other parts of the world were that caring. I strongly recommend the facility to any Astronomer or Astronomy enthusiast.
  • It's amazing place for star gazers.
  • You can visit several Observatory, Observatory and observation equipment. I think excellent historical material such as star of old photographic and commentary version, ideal to learn history of modern Japan in astronomical observations. So many old buildings is not simply recommend very retro.
