Q. Is there any recommended accommodation that is convenient (and preferably near) to the conference venues?
A. There are not specific recommended hotels for conference attendees to stay at, but the following general information may assist you.
The area around Kyoto station provides good access to the conference venues located at Ryukoku University’s Fukakusa Campus and Omiya Campus. In addition, the “Karasuma” Subway Line provides easy access across the north and south of the city. There are a lot of accommodation options located near to the following subway stations: “Kyoto” (京都), “Gojo” (五条), “Shijo” (四条) and “Karasumaoike” (烏丸御池). Please choose in accordance with your budget.
In recent years, Kyoto has become one of the best sightseeing cities in the world and attracts many visitors each year. We would thus recommend that you book accommodation before May to take advantage of hotel availability.
