  • When I'm through the Koshu-Kaido, found by chance in the navigation so I stopped by. Parking, up to three hours at 500 yen 停maremasu Koshu-Kaido Street on the far side. Learn the history of astronomy in Japan materials and measuring instruments, it is ideal. Make you feel I missed as well as video was so want to go to the next location

  • If you love space and in the area then it's all worthwhile coming here. It's not massive. They could do it a little better though and have an opportunity to turn it into a tourist attraction. A short walk away is jindaiji gardens and temple and I would recommend doing all three in the one day. Google maps will help you.
  • One of the best observatories you will ever see. Lovely place.
