Aimed at making the results of its research activities and the latest information in Earth and marine science widely known to the general public, JAMSTEC welcomes visitors for facility tours at the following three locations. In addition to tours of the latest research facilities and video showings, visitors will find plenty of interesting contents including hands-on exhibits.
Equipped with video galleries, each outfitted with a large-sized screen or a 3D screen, the pavilion serves as a library rich in audiovisual material such as DVDs. Visitors can learn about Earth and marine science while enjoying themselves.
The Center was established in 2001 in Nago City, Okinawa prefecture as a collection and dissemination site for ocean and Earth environment information. It provides a fun way for visitors to learn about the sea and Earth.
