Re-Experience the miracle of birth in the 360-degree planetarium world.

Comparing the dome of the hemisphere to a womb allows us to immerse ourselves in the grand cosmic dimension, from the birth of the galaxy to the birth of the earth to the birth of life. Through this experience, we can rediscover the "wonder of the universe". Birth affirms the beauty of life.

Gan Mama Cafe -

The Gan Mama Cafe is an initiative based in Tama City, Tokyo. Ms. Fumiko Inoue, the founder of Gan Mama Cafe, herself experienced breast cancer while raising her 2-year-old son. Understanding the feelings of loneliness and concerns that mothers face when they are diagnosed with cancer during their parenting journey, she started Gan Mama Cafe to create a space where individuals who have had similar experiences can connect, share their inner thoughts, lighten their hearts even just a bit, and support each other as comrades.

This event is organized to support the activities of Gan Mama Cafe, with the cooperation of Benesse Stardome, a planetarium facility operated by Benesse Corporation as part of their community contribution efforts. The first half will consist of a screening of "LIFE®︎ Inochi," followed by a tea party in the latter half.
