Twenty Years of the Japan Amateur Astronomers’ Convention

  • Seiji Kimura
Conference paper


In 1967, the Kawasaki Astronomy Club organized the first national assembly for amateur astronomers. This was such a success that a second was held in 1969 and yearly thereafter. Since the establishment in 1982 of the Kaho Prize commemorating Kaho, who was the first Japanese to discover a new comet (in 1936), this award has been presented at the Convention.
