The largest facility of its kind in Chiba Prefecture!
The Planetarium has a dome 18 meters in diameter, with 255 seats, making it the largest in the prefecture. Programs for the general public and for children are both shown, so visitors can enjoy shows suitable for their age.Keep coming back year round for "live commentary" on the stars as they would appear that very night and programming that changes with the seasons.
Under the twinkling stars of the night sky, your eyes will be shining too! Make a memory that will last a lifetime.
Visitors have come to love the "live commentary", which is found in very few planetariums across Japan. Even adults are spellbound by this romantic stargazing experience.
The Planetarium's unique exterior, shaped like a UFO. A fantastic myriad of stars rain down inside the dome.
The exhibition corner with pictures of the heavens on display. Interest in the stars is growing.
