A Taste of Science

Golden Week is probably the longest holiday in Japan celebrating the time for kids. So last May 4, we went to Yatsugatake for a small picnic in the park and planetarium visit. We were also there to see some animals. However, we didn't find them inside the huge park. Our search for the animals turned into trekking; and I wasn't so prepared for it. Haha!

After letting my little cousin play at the playground, we've gone...uhm, trekking?:)) And when we lost our way, we went back to where we started then proceeded to the planetarium. We came right in time for the show. Unfortunately, it was in Nihonggo so I didn't completely understand. The presentation was about Hayabusa, an unmanned spacecraft developed by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched in May 9 , 2003 to Itokawa, wherein it studied about the asteroid; and brought samples back on earth's surface on June 13, 2010. I also got fascinated with the photographs of Tetsuya Nakagaki. Truly amazing shots! Please explore http://aurora-dance.com/ for more.

my cousin went inside to take a photo of me haha


Since it was a long presentation, and we were all lying on reclined seats, my uncle, aunt and grandmother all fell asleep! haha! My cousins and I have been "silently" laughing since the middle part of the presentation towards the end because the oldies were even snoring haha! Anyway, after the show, we bought some souvenirs and my cousin rode cute toy rides (i can't call them bicycles because some have more than 2 wheels haha) outside. And since we all got hungry, we had an early dinner at a ramen place.


nice view
