Japan's particle physics research centre KEK will have its Open House on 6 September. Two ILC test facilities, ATF and STF, will have guided tours. Check out the informative and fun exhibits at the Kenkyu-honkan building, meet the Higgs particle in person. Everybody who visited and collect stamps of two ILC related facilities and an exhibit can get one of 18 particle button. It's a must if you're in Japan!
