  • From Tsukuba station convenient bus or bicycle. Although a little bit away, a must-see in Tsukuba city. Full-sized rockets and satellites such as expositions, there. You can buy souvenirs and food.

  • Because I didn't know when there were tour book and tour, are arriving in free tour. It is recommended because it foreshadows the space development in daily life hardly have an edge.

  • Free tour reservations required free. Car tour and tells the gate guard and left for visitors parking. Don't stop by for a free tour publicity and information, direct admission to the space Dome, planet cube is OK. Overwhelmed by going into space Dome, real and powerful exhibition.

  • Located at the back of the parking lot is going to come on a tour of the Space Center, and is on top of the rocket Plaza, this reception is "public relations and information building (e-2)" to go. Here is a stop for people at work. Note has been posted there as well as other points of the Space Center, the General was not related to photography.
