Kashiwa Planetarium

Museum / Science Museum
This domed planetarium is located on the second floor of the Kashiwa City Library. Planetarium shows are held on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month as well as the following Sundays, and entry is free. Show themes change monthly, and the stars and accompanying programs showed vary accordingly. The planetarium is notable for its homemade, home crafted approach. The cityscape at the base of the planetarium dome is made of paper cutouts and the movement of the projected stars is also operated manually. Program narration is provided entirely live by staff. The appeal of this is the adlib nature of the narration, which may use less complicated language when there are many children in the audience and, conversely, increase the amount of technical language when there are many knowledgeable people watching the show.
