The Tanegashima Space Center (種子島宇宙センター, Tanegashima Uchū Sentā) (TNSC) is the largest rocket-launch complex in Japan. Its area is about 9.7 square kilometers. It is on the southeast coast of Tanegashima, an island about 40 kilometers (25 mi) south of Kyushu. It was established in 1969 when the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) began, and is now run by JAXA.
