“Holy Place” of Japanese Radio Astronomy
Japanese radio astronomy that was born immediately after the war,
has remarkably developed into a global level in Nobeyama
with solar radio observations and cosmic radio observations
by 45-m radio telescope and so on.

The 45-m telescope is one of the world's largest radio telescopes that observes in the millimeter (1mm-10mm) wavelengths. Using its large 45-m diameter aperture,the 45-m telescope is capable of collecting extremely weak signal from distant terrestrial objects.
Nobeyama Radio Polarimeters
Nobeyama Radio Polarimeters are observing the Sun with multiple frequencies in the microwave range. It is capable to obtain the total incoming flux and the circular-polarization degree.

Nobeyama Millimeter Array
The Nobeyama Millimeter Array (NMA) is a telescope array that consists of six parabolic antennas. Its ability to produce high spatial resolution images is equivalent to a 600-m diameter parabola,and it has pictured details of numerous celestial objects.
