The Uchinoura Space Center has launched over 390 rockets since 1962, as well as about 30 satellites and probes since Japan's first satellite, "Osumi," was launched in 1970. There is a Space Science Reference Center on site for education about scientific satellites and the history of rockets.
For more information about this field center, please click here.
Models of rockets and satellites, scientific instruments, and the Pad Service Tower of the Mu rocket are on display.
On the experiment site, only the exterior of the facilities can be viewed. The antennas and the launcher for the Mu rocket can be seen.
The Uchinoura Space Center (USC) launches sounding rockets and scientific satellites and manages tracking and data.
An observation deck for launch experiments is open to the public. (Entry to the site will be partly restricted on launch days)
