Oshu Space Museum

Oshu City

Southern Iwate

Oshu Space Museum, which utilizes the former main building of the Latitude Observatory, is now open on the grounds of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan's Mizusawa VERA Observatory. We have a corner introducing the history of the Latitude Observatory and its relationship with Kenji, as well as a ``4-dimensional digital space theater'' developed by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan that allows you to view astronomical images in 3D. We also hold events such as nighttime astronomical observations and seminars.
