Nobeyama Space Radio Observatory

Point of interest. The world's largest radio telescope that suddenly appears in a vast vegetable field. It is one of the most accurate in the world, exploring the darkest parts of the universe by observing radio waves called “millimeter waves” with short wavelengths. This telescope found a huge black hole in another galaxy. This radio telescope, with a background of Yatsugatake, and its observation of countless radio heliographs has helped create new information about space.
