    Chiba Pref. Funabashishi Azumachou 834
    Just a 15-minute walk from the JR Higashi Funabashi Station, this planetarium is part of the Funabashi City General Education Center. Boasting the largest planetarium in Chiba Prefecture, the dome alone is 18-meter wide and the auditorium seats 255 people. Inside the dome is the largest projector in Chiba, lovingly called Cosmo-kun, which projects any variety of night sky scenes, and a staff member gives live commentary on the scene for that night’s sky. There are starry night sky presentations for various seasonal themes that play automatically as well for visitors to enjoy the powerful full-dome experience, and there are the constellation buttons that can be pressed to light-up to simulate the seasonal constellations.

    時期にもよりますが、だいたい一日に3-4回投映をやっております。ただし、平日は団体向けしか投映をやっていないためその点は注意です。観覧料は大人430円、子供210円です。
