Access to the hotel
  1. Hotel rooms are booked in Daiwa Roynet Hotel Kyoto-Hachijyoguchi (it takes about 4 minutes on foot from Kyoto Station).  

  2. On the ground floor of Kansai International Airport, please take a Limousine bus bound for Kyoto Station at the bus stop #8 (before getting on the bus, you have to buy a ticket either from a machine or at a ticket counter.) At the final bus stop of the Limousine in Kyoto Station, a local organizer of the conference will be waiting for you.

Access to Kyoto University
  1. Every day, a chartered bus leaves the hotel at 8:00 for the conference.

  2. For access from Kyoto JR Station to North Campus, please consult the guide before taking a bus or taxi. See also Map for Yoshida Campus.

  3. Please look at Campus Map for North Campus. Science Seminar House is Building #10, Mathematics Department is in Building #5, and Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences is in Building #7.
