Facilities at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Tanegashima 
Space Center, the base for launching this country's mainstay H-2A 
rockets, have seriously deteriorated due to age.

 Although repairs have been conducted at a cost of about 1 billion 
yen annually, the center's seaside location has led to rapid salt 
erosion, and countermeasures cannot keep up with the damage.
