KEK (Tsukuba) Tour

J-PARC (Tokai) Tour

J-PARC is located in Tokai site of JAEA (about one hour drive from Tsukuba), and its accelerator complex consists of an injector linac, 3-GeV RCS (Rapid Cycling Synchrotron), and 30-GeV MR (Main Ring). As J-PARC is in a summer shutdown, we can offer a rare chance to tour into the accelerator tunnel to see the above three accelerators.

Linac-Laser facility of University of Tokyo is located just beside the JAEA site, where active research is being carried out for advanced accelerator developmemt. It includes an Inverse Compton scattering X-ray source, photo-cathode RF gun, laser plasma cathode, and electron linacs to generate extremely short-pulsed electron beams.

As the available time for the site tour is limited, we plan to have the following two courses in the J-PARC (Tokai) Tour.

  • Course J1: J-PARC Linac, J-PARC RCS, and J-PARC MR
  • Course J2: J-PARC Linac, and Linac-Laser facility of U of Tokyo

As the available number of tickets is limited for these two courses, please specify your choice between the above two courses in sending the visit proposal described below (by adding your choice in the body of the e-mail) to make your reservation.

If you have Japanese citizenship, you don't have to submit your visit proposal. In this case, please simply send your choice between the above two courses by e-mail to the conference e-mail address

Tentative schedule for J-PARC (Tokai) Tour is as follows,

  • 13:30 Depart from conference venue (lunch in the bus)
  • 15:00 Arrive at Tokai
  • 15:00-18:00 Site Tour
  • 18:00 Depart from Tokai
  • 19:30 Arrive at conference venue
