Launch Complex-2 is a launch site for frequent orbital rocket launches, with a launch pad, assembly building, and propellant tank yard permanently installed.


The 1,000-meter runway attached to Launch Complex-1 can be used for takeoff and landing of test spaceplanes. In the future, the runway will be extended to 3,000 meters to accommodate manned space planes used for space travel.


Part of the Hokkaido Spaceport has been in operation since 1995 and has contributed to the aerospace industry's development by frequently hosting aerospace experiments and rocket launches.

At the Hokkaido Spaceport, Interstellar Technologies Inc. has been conducting launches and firing tests for the suborbital rocket MOMO since 2013. JAXA, universities, and research institutes also conduct experiments. Muroran Institute of Technology opened a satellite office in 2020.



Hokkaido Spaceport gathers businesses engaged in the space industry from all over the world. As an infrastructure that supports the space industry's development, we provide total support from research and development to commercial use.
