Tsukuba Space Center Reviews
入場無料でこれだけのモノが見れるとは、スペースファンにはたまらないと思います。 せっかく行くなら予約制の見学ツアー（70分・500円）が絶対にお勧め！ ただし、すぐに埋まるので早めに予約してください。 トイレのマークも宇宙服を着ていて可愛いですよ♪ more »I don't think it's too much for space fans to see this much free of charge. If you're going to a long time, we recommend a tour of the reservation system for 70 minutes and 500 yen. However, please make a reservation as soon as possible because it will be filled quickly. The mark of the restroom is also wearing the space suit and is pretty♪
せっかくつくばに来たのだからと、寄ってみました。入場料も駐車料金も無料です。事前予約が必要ですが、５００円で見学ツアーもあります。今回は到着時間が予測できなかったので諦めましたが、出来れば参加したかったです。無料で入れるエリアでも宇宙に関する色んな物を見ることができます。宇宙に興味が無くても、ある人なら尚更、楽しむことが出来ると思います。 more »Because it came to Tsukuba with great pains, it stopped by. Admission and parking are free of charge. Advance reservation is required, but there is also a tour for 500 yen. I gave up because I couldn't predict the arrival time this time, but I wanted to participate if I could. You can also see various things about the universe in the area that you can enter for free. Even if you are not interested in the universe, i think that you can enjoy even more if it is a certain person.
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.
