  • Book a guided 500 yen, took part. You can visit places usually cannot see, staff were very helpful. In the shop I know children 2 years of age, but stopped after the tour, and the space dome staff children. Thinking or not thinking normally offers tours, users can realize the difficulty of the astronauts, was very good. Want to go on tour again.

  •  Whenever children are bordering on the coverage of the universe, etc. many times attend feet to head. Exhibits such as the warehouse and the high quality, has become my own study. Tour reservation is very rich.

  •  Only what is seen is when there are a lot of various real or replica like the universe, but in TV, books, etc., do not give the impression that the kind of excitement over what might be.  In reverse it goes on we all know and enjoy. Paid tours of the reservation, I can go to where you can't see, but generally first round and for the geeks, not 割ri切rimashou. But tensions between the air traffic control center is a must-see (very unfortunately not allowed to take in here) is.  Space dome can be visited free of charge on the other hand, for more staff but there, maybe this is just a high satisfaction. Tours and free tours (every hour) and description of the approximately 60 minutes both, since there is overlap in these two, please follow the process.
