  • Bad parking, accessible parking, and not to the parking lot only a person can go. In case of rain and wind is complicated because there is no covered place to wait. At the reception. Other than that, the exhibition is interesting but a few things were written in English.

  • JAXA除了有常設供一般民眾參觀的展覽館以外,也有能夠安排一日內部參觀的行程(須事先預約),同時也是知名日劇-下町火箭(阿部寬主演)的拍攝地之一,展覽館的小賣部裡亦有販售太空人吃的太空食物如罐頭麵包,咖哩等有趣的紀念品噢,有機會來到筑波市的朋友不妨來參觀看看。  more »
