Origin:A comment presented at JRS Space Tourism Study Conference held on April 14, 1993. Edited and translated into English from taped transcript originally in Japanese. Originally published in the Journal of Space Technology and Science, Vol.9 No.1 '93 spring, pp.19-20

When I was invited to talk about various issues concerning space transportation for space tourism, I remembered the early aviators called barnstormers. They were veteran pilots who got aeroplanes which were used and disposed of by the government after World War 1. They took to the road with these air planes for acrobatic flight shows and entertainment of passenger flights. It was the good old days of early aeroplanes. Space tourism sounds to me like a revival of such old dreams of flight. Wondering if the Japanese Rocket Society agrees with my idea, I would like to comment on the subject around this theme.
