Wonder what the cost per kilo is? There's a lot of companies vying for delivery duty to the ISS now. Perhaps the near future looks bright for non governmental space stations too?

H-IIB rocket can be used for transport of a-bomb cargo.

BessonovYan, so true but it has never been tested as such. China and Russia both have these deployed. So why no congrats on a successful civilian launch?

Akihiko Hoshide will use it cargo for start little satellites in space. I suppose that JAXA will test new technology for little satellites. May be JAXA hope create new world space market for Japanese technology: little low cost satellite.

JAXA can use and offer own technology for create robotics for Fukushima. I can not understand why JAXA technology not used for solving Fukushima problems.

This cargo vessel will be joined with the ISS using ISS's robot arm SSRMS. (Space Station Remote Manipulator System).
