Transportation

Tokyo is served by two major airports.

NRT is Narita International Airport. The quickest, easiest way to get from Narita to the meeting location is to take the Narita Express train to Tokyo Station, a one-hour trip that costs approximately ¥2,800.

HND is Haneda International Airport, which is much closer to Tokyo, but has slightly fewer international flights. There are a variety of ways to get from Haneda to the meeting location, but the most direct is to take the Keikyu-Kuko Line (which changes into the Asakusa Line) to Takaracho Station, about a 35 minute train ride.

Upon arrival, it's advisable to get a Suica or Pasmo IC card to pay for public transportation, as well as use in convenience stores and vending machines.

The closest stations to the venue are Kyobashi (Ginza Line), Takaracho (Asakusa Line), and Tokyo Station (too many to list).

Accommodation

Many hotels are nearby, including:
