December 5-8, 2016, RIKEN Okochi-Hall, Wako, Saitama, Japan

home program invited speakers registration access
The workshop will be held at RIKEN Wako Campus in Saitama prefecture, which is next to Tokyo. The nearest airport is either Tokyo Narita Airport or Tokyo Haneda Airport. Typically it will take two hours from these airports to RIKEN, Wako. For invited speakers the accommodations will be reserved by us near RIKEN (around the Wako train station). Otherwise, participants are supposed to find an accommodation by themselves, but if (foreign) participants have any trouble in finding a lodge, please contact the organizers.

The train system in Japan is very well developed (and complicated). So, there are multiple ways, which is convenient but may look difficult for foreign visitors. If the timing is good, the Airport Bus could be the best (simplest) solution. You can just go to the ticket office of the Airport Bus and buy a ticket bound for Wako-shi. If taking the train, you should change train lines twice (at least). Ikebukuro is a big train station (a sort of hub station) where you can take either Tobu-Tojo Line or Yurakucho Line to come to Wako-shi. For more details, please consult (see an example of search -- Dec.4 about 3pm)

A personal experience from Tokyo-Narita to Wako-shi has been uploaded. Please visit here to read it. Hope it helps you with your trip planning.

From the Wako-shi train station, RIKEN is approximately 20 minutes away on foot. You can also take a taxi; the taxi driver should recognize RIKEN easily. The cost depends on traffic and usually something between 1000 and 2000 JPYen. For more details, you can see the route on the Google map: Click here to see the route
