A Japanese businessman, who used to shoot space TV commercials at a cosmonaut training facility near Moscow, told journalists at a press conference, that he was happy to return to Star City as a space tourist, preparing for his flight to the International Space Station (ISS).

"I am very happy to come back to Star City not for TV commercial shooting, but for the cosmonaut training," Takamatsu Satoshi said.

The space tourist said that being a cosmonaut had been his dream since he was six. However, he gave up his dream as he needed glasses and began a career in business instead.

While shooting a commercial with two Russian cosmonauts, Takamatsu found out that Russian people are kind and nice.

Takamatsu, a founder of the Space Travel and Space Films companies, is going on a space tour with British singer Sarah Brightman, who arrived in Moscow on January 19 for a six-month preparation course prior to her 10-day stay on board the ISS.
