This conference will be held at the Sendai International Center. Date: July 6th and 7th 2018 Venue: Sendai International Center (Address: Aobayama, Aoba-ku, Sendai 980-0856)
To get to Sendai: By Plane: 1) There are direct flights to Sendai from Beijing, Seoul, and Shanghai. 2) It is also possible to transit through Narita Airport (Tokyo) or Kansai International Airport (Osaka). Sendai is about a 1 hour flight from Narita, and a 1.5 hour flight from Kansai International Airport. By Train: 1) From Tokyo, Sendai is approximately 90 minutes by shinkansen (bullet train). Please be aware that it takes more than 1 hour to get to Tokyo station from Narita airport.
From Sendai Airport to the Venue: Most economical is to take a 25 minute train ride from the airport to Sendai Station, and then to change to the Tozai Subway Line. International Center Station is just 3 stops on the subway from Sendai Station (5 minutes), and then the venue is a 1 minute walk from the station. **If you are staying at either the Monterey Hotel or the Toyoko Inn (as part of the registration package), you will want to go from Sendai Airport to Sendai Station. Both hotels are then walking distance from the station. Then each day of the conference, you will take the 5-minute subway ride between Sendai and International Center Stations.
We understand that it can sometimes be both exciting but also daunting to travel to a country one has never been. If it helps to facilitate your participation in our conference, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about traveling in Japan.
