JAXA wants to land humans into Lunar at least in 2030, this Japanese plan is a direct competition response to China that plans a similar mission in 2036. However, it is possible that both countries are working together for the same purpose.

Most likely JAXA will choose collaboration considering the cost for this plan will too expensive to pay for itself. A JAXA spokesman said on Friday they wanted to be part of a moon-bound plan involving many countries including India.

This is the first time JAXA has publicly announced its determination to explore sending astronauts to anywhere outside the International Space Station program. The idea first joins the NASA-led mission in 2025 to build a space station in the moon's orbit as part of a long-term effort to reach Mars.

This international plan to Lunar will begin to be prepared by 2025. Japan is not exactly able to send astronauts in the program, but they hope to get a place by giving some rewards to the project's contribution.

Tokyo wants to contribute and share technology will give an opportunity for their astronauts at the station. JAXA will provide more information regarding space exploration plan on the Space Exploration Forum in March 2018. JAXA has other big plans as CNSA and ISRO have embarked on an "Asian space race".

The two Asian giants have already expanded their space program. In November, China's Shenzhou-11 spacecraft returned to Earth and took home two astronauts. Beijing has also launched a rover mission to sent red planet by the end of decade.

NASA, ESA and ROSCOSMOS are also working hard to send astronauts to Mars by 2030. In March, the US Congress passed a law signed by President Donald Trump as a mandate to NASA to send a manned mission to Mars in 2033.
