Keywords:road map, future plan, solar system exploration, planetary exploration

Answering to the request from ISAS/JAXA, the president and his advisory committee of Japanese Society for Planetary Science (JSPS) submitted a road map for the next 20 years of the Solar System Exploration of Japan on 2015 February 2. Needless to say, this road map is of particular importance for the future of planetary science community. Nevertheless, the short period of the preparation prevented a deep argument among the planetary science community on this road map. As the committee members, the authors realize keenly the necessity of continuing discussion on this road map and decided to give a talk at the JpGU meeting to attract attention of every community member on this subject. The proposed road map and the processes until finalizing the document are explained by the committee to start further arguments with anyone who concerns about the future of the solar system exploration.
