Symposium Venue "Yokosuka Research Park (YRP)"
Kamakura used to be the political center of Eastern Japan for many centuries. In 1192 Minamoto Yoritomo established the Kamakura government there. This government continued to govern the whole country successfully for more than a century.
Kamakura is located in Kanagawa prefecture less than an hour from Yokohama and Tokyo. It is a very popular touristic destination since many temples and other historically valuable monuments remain in Kamakura; the most famous of them is the Great Buddha statue. In addition, Kamakura lies on the coast and offers several beaches.

Those who need an official letter of invitation in order to attend the symposium may write to the Secretariat specifying the details.
