Situated just north of the country's capital, Tsukuba holds an established reputation as a thriving center for science research and education, earning the title "Japan's Science City." Originally planned in the 1960s as a spillover city of Tokyo and leading center for science, today Tsukuba attracts budding scientists from across the globe, all keen to see its innovative space centers, expos, and museums.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Geological Museum. Kick off your visit on the 14th (Mon): don't miss a visit to Ushiku Chateau, engage your brain at Geological Museum, engage your brain at Tsukuba Space Center, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Oda Castle Remains, and finally don't miss a visit to Tsukubasan Shrine.
