Every year during the middle of April, the various research institutes in Tsukuba open up their facilities to public tours. This year, 45 institutes will be open to the public, some on all of the days and others on only specific days. This is a great opportunity to see what kind of research is being done in Tsukuba, and so you can spend just a short time or the whole day visiting a variety of institutes. Free shuttle buses run regularly around a loop that will take you to all of the institutes open on a specific day. All buses leave from the Tsukuba Bus Center and make a run around a loop route coming back to the center.
For a list of the research institutes and there scheduled days of opening, see:
