Guest : Dr. Michiko Imai (Medical Doctor/Climber), Wintering party of the 47th Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE), Summer party of the 48th JARE
In January of this year, director Mohri visited Antarctica, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Japan's initial Antarctic expedition. To show appreciation to the people who warmly welcomed him, he had invited the members of the Antarctic expeditionary team and their families to Miraikan.
Although the members had just returned to Japan on the previous day and were understandably tired, many members of the team were able to visit the museum. For lunch, a small gathering was held and Overwinter Captain Koukichi Kamiyama, his team and their families were able to spend some time with the director, deputy director and Ms. Michiko Imai who visited the Antarctica with the director.
