Between 29 Nov and 3 Dec 2014, a group of 12 Japanese people attended an expedition in La Palma to observe the Phoenicids meteor shower and visit the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (ORM).

The group was lead by Dr. Juniki Watanabe (co-director of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, NAOJ) and included a crew from the NHK Japanese national television and other representatives and amateur astronomers from Kawasaki Science Museum, Nippon Meteor Society and Prof. Dr. Emeritus Junji Nakamura (University of Tokyo, author and discoverer of this meteor shower).
