to Nagoya

Tall Nagoya Buddha


Nagoya is located in the center of Honshu (the main island of Japan) and has a population of 2.24 million. Thanks to the abundant water resources of the Kisogawa, Nagaragawa and Ibigawa rivers, the resulting fertile land, and good transportation links, its people have long enjoyed affluent lives.
Japan’s fourth most populated city, Nagoya is a world-class manufacturing hub and home to Toyota and Pachinko. Less than two hours from Tokyo (and 35 minutes from Kyoto), Nagoya is perfectly situated as a prime destination for international congresses. Home of the Great Shrine of Atsuta, Nagoya Castle, and the world famous Tokugawa Art Museum, there is something for everyone to enjoy in the city of Nagoya.

Congress Venue

The congress will take place at Nagoya Congress Center, in the heart of downtown Nagoya. The Nagoya Congress Center, designed to reflect a swan, is a purpose built congress center and will house all parts of the congress in one building.  Surrounded by food options, public transportation, and multiple accommodation options, it is in the middle of everything needed to make the congress a success and easy for delegates.
