The symposium will take place at the Kyoto University Clock Tower Centennial Hall on the main campus of Kyoto University, which is located at the north-east part of the city.

Kyoto is often called the "Japanese heartland", and it is said that it is impossible to know the real Japan without knowing Kyoto.

For over 1,000 years, Kyoto was the capital of Japan, the heart of culture and politics. Furthermore, Kyoto is unique within Japan in that it was virtually untouched during World War II, leaving a myriad of temples, shrines and a castle intact. This legacy has been recognized by UNESCO, which has designated seventeen separate sites within Kyoto's borders as World Cultural Heritage sites.

Natural scenery, temples, shrines, towns and houses intermingle with a poignant historical beauty in Kyoto. Gion Festival, tea ceremony, Japanese flower arrangement, Nishijin-brocade, and many other unique Japanese traditional cultures and industries continue to thrive in Kyoto.
