Japan has its own space agency (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA) and has been taking an important role in space activities. Furthermore, many new space ventures and efforts as a private sector are started showing up in Japan. Space activities among the young people are of course vigorous and passionate, including the SGAC activities in Japan.
Overview of Activities
In Japan, We have met a lot of space colleagues in the world through SGAC activities, SGC, and other aerospace events. We hope to develop more real business relationships with them. And we are now focusing on communicating well with each SGAC Japan members, keeping in touch with the participants of the past SGCs and spreading the word about the great experiences in SGAC to the space enthusiasts in Japan.
Visions of SGAC Japan:

2. To keep in touch with the participants of the past SGCs.
3. To spread the word about the great experiences in SGAC to the space enthusiasts in Japan.
4. To encourage more members from Japan to participate in SGC.
