  • There are many things that you don't normally see, and there are many things to see. I took a guided tour. If you have time, we recommend that you join us. There were so many places where i could take pictures.

  • My son has a grand dream of wanting to be an astronaut in the future, so I'll visit him once. Because it is during the summer vacation, there is a tour of the tour from half past 13 to half a minute, and it participates. The person who seemed to be an OB staff explained it easily, and it was friendly. Replica satellites and h2 rockets that were actually used are on display everywhere. In addition to paid tours, there are also courses where you can hear rocket sounds, so the day passes quickly. On weekends, the only drawback is that there is no place to eat on site. It is a place that satisfies the intellectual desire to make up for it enough.

  • Here you can have lots of spot to take picture. Especially the astronout costume. That's awesome! There are some vending machines for beverages around Jaxxa, so don't worry if you'll get thirsty. They also have small cafe that sell coffee and bakery. Beside this, you can find omiyage/souvenir shop. If you come in a group, they have common room/hall. The toilets are so clean. Overall, it'll give you fun and knowledge at the same time, especially for kids.
  • The exhibition centre is quite boring. The only main attraction will be the souvenir shops. There is guided tour but it costs you some Yen and plus it's in Japanese.
