Walk 600 metres walking from the parking lot and you will see monuments, such as Stonehenge. Admission is: adult ¥ 300. Telescope works, knowledge, and 150 cm, 75 cm large telescopes to see. I would love to go at night. Views of the day is best.
旅行情報誌にも紹介されている天文台です。山の上にあり、駐車場から階段を上り、10分程。なかなかの勾配です。階段で歩きやすいのですが、熊に出くわすことも多く、鈴が入り口に置いてあり、鳴らしながら踊り場では鉦も鳴らしながら進みます。足の悪い方は麓から電話すれば迎えが来ます。皆さん小さなお子さん連れて上ってました。急に開けた場所に天文台はありました。夏場は22時まで営業しており、一度16時半に閉館しま... more »Is the Observatory mentioned in the travel magazine. At the top of the mountain and went up the stairs from the parking lot, about 10 minutes. It is a hard slope. Often come across a bear is easy to walk on the stairs, and placed at the entrance to Bell, while blaring rang Kane on the landing. If you call from the wrong side of the foot come to pick us up. You little kids, we were taken. Observatory Open suddenly. Summer is open until 10 pm and closes at 16:30 once, but also open to 19 again. In another interesting is the opportunity to see the appearance of a large astronomical telescope telescope to look into early summer bright visible stars are hard to see and even there, so went very well. Room darkening and darkening, so may be afraid of small children. It is, but I think to be a good experience. This was a full moon.
This Observatory is a little difficult to get to from Tokyo but its totally worth the trip. The trek up the mountain to the observatory is fun. But air is a little light, so tread carefully. Approaching the building is exciting, the outside of the premises has constellation themed structures. I know them from many Japanese tv programs, but seeing them in person was way cooler. The observatory features a very inexpensive tour of the museum floor that will take you up to their telescope that has been in operation since 1997. You can also walk around the outside of its dome and get a wonderful view of the structures outside and all the surrounding towns. A must see if you are in Gunma or passing through, Please visit this location for some great views and educational adventure.
This national facility hosts two large telescopes which the public can get a view of the night sky through on throughout the week. During the day there are tours of the large telescopes and the exhibits outside. There are also interesting exhibits about the work of astronomy which will inspire any 10 year old child. It's a 10 minute walk from the car park to the domes along a scale model of the solar system. Bear bells for your safety are provided. There is an intercom for requesting a ride up the hill for those that cannot cope with steps. It's a lovely place with friendly and accommodating staff who aren't afraid of trying to speak with foreigners (in Japanese). There's space to eat a pack lunch (no food sold on site, but there are drinks machines). Groups can book private nights with the on-site smaller telescopes. This is a small but very well run facility. For the day time you'd need 2-3 hours.
