The conference will be held in Ise-Shima Royal Hotel that is located at the height from which beautiful complex coastlines can be seen.

Ise-Shima is located in the Tokai area, which is geographically the central part of Japan and is close to Nagoya City. To get to Ise-Shima from overseas, you can fly to either Osaka or Nagoya, which are the main routes. To get to the Tokai area within Japan, using trains from the major cities or airports will be the most convenient.

The venue is about 10min distance (~2150JPY) by taxi from Shima-Isobe Station operated by Kintetsu Line.

The area around the venue is in the Ise-Shima National Park on the Shima Peninsula. In the national park, there are numerous historical and interesting places including the Ise Grand Shrine (Ise Jingu). Ise Jingu is one of the most sacred Shinto shrines in Japan. Amaterasu Omikami, the ancestral goddess of the Imperial Family, was enshrined 2000 years ago, and has been worshiped by the successive emperors.
Average temperatures in November in Ise-Shima range from a high of 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) to a low of 5 degrees Celsius (41 degrees Fahrenheit). Weather conditions in November are rather chilly but sometimes pleasant. Autumn colors are spectacular.
