Rule of Introductory Workshop

This introductory workshop is open to everyone. Speaker must give an introductory lecture about his/her important research without respect to the past and the present. Especially, aged professor must talk about his important result for young researchers, even if he talked many times decades ago. Because young researchers have never heard the talk of aged professor directly, and young researchers want to know what the aged professor was thinking and how the aged professor solved it.

4. Hotel Information (under construction)

You can find general hotel information at Rakuten and Expedia in English.

Close to Downtown Kyoto:

Downtown Kyoto is roughly the rectangle bound by Kawaramachi street (with City bus No.17 line to RIMS) in the east, by Karasuma street (with the Karasuma subway line from Kyoto Station) in the west, by Shijo street in the south, and by Oike street with the City Hall in the north. This is where the large department stores and the shopping malls are located. Gion, the traditional and exclusive entertainment district, is further east across the Kamo river. With one bus and walk, you can make easy connections to the RIMS campus from many hotels.

Close to Kyoto University:

Unfortunately, there are hardly any hotels close to Kyoto University. Some of the hotels listed below are within walking distance, some are not.

Close to JR Kyoto station (Southern Kyoto):

There are many more hotels close to the main train station (JR Kyoto station). Since this is south of the city center while Kyoto University is to the north-east, this area may be less convenient.

For a list of hotels see any tourist webpage on Kyoto, e.g., the one of the Kyoto Visitor's Guide.
