JAXA Museum

This one surprised me. I was walking in Tenmonkan one day recently, when I suddenly noticed this model rocket on the corner of the building. Seems that JAXA (the Japanese version of NASA) is putting in a small museum and public education center on the 2nd floor. It's reasonable, since JAXA has a rocket launch site on Tanegashima island, which is within the boundaries of Kagoshima Prefecture.

The sign says that the museum is coming soon. It will include information on the universe, astronauts and "gourmet space food".
