Travel and location

The conference will be held at the Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex, a major hub of the Tokyo Bay area that is conveniently located only 40 minutes by limousine bus from Tokyo’s two main airports, Narita Airport and Haneda Airport.

The venue is conveniently located only 400 meters away from Kaihin Makuhari Station of JR Keiyo Line. From this station you can travel to anywhere in Japan, particularly to Tokyo Station which is one of the most important centers of Tokyo. It takes less than half an hour by JR Keiyo Line, and the services are frequent. The Shinkansen bullet trains, long-distance buses and a variety of group tours all depart from Tokyo Station.
