Location

Map of Kanazawa

Kenroku Garden
   Kanazawa is located in the central part of the mainland of Japan. The southeast of the city faces the mountains and the northwest faces the Sea of Japan. It was a great castle town ruled by an influential leader from the 17th century through the 19th century. Kanazawa has maintained rows of historical houses and inherited traditional crafts and arts.
21st Century Museum
   Ishikawa Prefecture Museum of Art (IPMA) is located in the cultural heart of Kanazawa and can be accessed by a 15-minute walk from downtown Kanazawa. There are many other cultural and historical museums around IPMA, such as Ishikawa Prefecture Noh Theater, Ishikawa-Ken History Museum, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, etc. It is neighbouring on Kenrokuen Garden, one of three most beautiful gardens in Japan.


   IPMA was intended to display fine arts and traditional crafts from Ishikawa Prefecture, including feudal Daimyo ustensils using the Kaga Makie technique and a huge range of Kutani porcelain collection - from Old Kutani to Reestablished Kutani. IPMA collections include one National Treasure and four Important Cultural Properties in its permanent exhibition halls.

Shiinoki cultural complex
   The conference venue will be split into the IPMA (talks) and the very close Shiinoki cultural complex (posters). The main accommodation place will be Excel Hotel Tokyu in the centre of downtown, where the banquet will take place. Attendees can select their hotel according to their budget. The Excel Hotel Tokyu and more economical hotels will be listed on the home page of the Workshop.

   Kanazawa has many seafood restaurants and also foreign restaurants (Chinese, French, Italian, etc.) around Excel Hotel Tokyu. While lunch will be served in the neighbouring IPMA annex, participants may enjoy dinner in Kanazawa according to their favourite taste.
