  • From Tokyo on junior high school classmate 2 Tsukuba-City visit. 1 hour free time and guide it to where? Refrain from Mt. Tsukuba, in the rain, tour the Space Center is selected. Vague fear that GEI, people over 70 than rocket tour tsukubasan shrine in joy? It was. However, are not delighted in the exhibit of the next device withstand the burning ship and the dwelling area, following. "Whenever the next comes with grandson!" in your enthusiasm. People of all ages not just accommodation once you come.

  • On weekends, I think you reserve tours as soon as possible for a busy season, and deepen the understanding of space exploration while listening to a polite description of JAXA officials. You can visit the various exhibits located in exhibition hall ago and after the tour. Will be overwhelmed by the life-size exhibits, free of charge and at your own pace, explore, so is recommended.

  • Special appreciation, but not both, it is possible to visit. From the book sound IM and you can experience during the launch of a rocket explosion. Also, to participate in the tour guide where you will find the detail in the exhibition hall. Putting on the full-sized space station model, in a space suit in the pictures. Stands selling food at the end.
