On Sunday, August 11, the head of the Tsukuba Space Center Toshihiko Kikuyama, will give a talk on how interesting life would be in outer space. While the talk will be in Japanese, he will use videos to help visualize what living in outer space is like. The presentation is from 10:30 to 11:45 at the Kasumi Tsukuba Center (located to the west of downtown Tsukuba on Tsuchiura Gakuen Sen), and will be followed by a "Kitsune no Yomeiri" ("marriage of the fox") food tasting session from 12:00 to 13:20. Both sessions are free and open to the public, but attendance for the second session is limited to 150 and reservations are required.
If you are interested in learning how to prepare space food and would like to try your hand at it, you can send a reply-paid postcard ("ofuku hagaki", a postcard with a self-addressed reply postcard attached) to Kasumi Kokoku Shitsu, 599-1 Nishi Ohashi, Tsukuba 305 by July 28 giving your name and address, age, number of people, and telephone number. This program is part of Kasumi's "My Production" program, which funds several programs per year that are proposed and organized by individuals in the community. This program will include a special Christmas program in English in December that is being organized by Margaret Tweet.
