JAXA H-IIA Rocket at Tokorozawa by rlkitterman JAXA H-IIA Rocket at Tokorozawa by rlkitterman
This model of a Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (国立研究開発法人宇宙航空研究開発機構/JAXA) Mitsubishi H-IIA space rocket with NIPPON markings on the first stage is displayed at the Tokorozawa Aviation Museum in Saitama Prefecture.  This rocket has been launched over thirty times, always from Tanegashima in Kyushu, and has carried both Japanese satellites and foreign satellites from America, Australia, Canada, Korea, and the United Arab Emirates.  It's not the world's biggest rocket and it's never carried any manned capsules, but it is a reliable and hard-working launch vehicle.
