Site visit to KamLAND
Field trip to KamLAND!!
We made a field trip for the faculties of the Tohoku University again this year in the middle of October. It was a good time to see autumn leaves as well.
KamLAND is located at Kamioka-cho, Hida-shi, Gifu prefecture. It is placed 1,000 meter down under the Mt. IKENOYAMA, where used to be a mine. The name of KamLAND was taken from their town name of Kamioka. Kamioka Liquid Scintillator Anti-eutrino Detector
We took a 2 km drive in the mine tunnel to get to the actual experiment facility point. Inside the mine was very cold. Mr. Nakamura did the guide for us, and he explained about the facility and about their research for us. Many thanks to Mr. Nakamura!!
