The WPTCE2024 Steering Committee will NOT provide any designated hotels for the conference participants. Please reserve hotel rooms by yourselves.
There is no hotel around Obaku Station (JR Nara Line or Keihan Railway Uji Line), which is the nearest station to the conference venue.
So we recommend that you stay at a hotel near Kyoto Station, which is about 18 minutes away from Obaku Station (JR Nara Line).
On JR Nara Line, there are trains operating between Kyoto Station and Obaku Station every 15 to 20 minutes, and Kyoto Station is also convenient for access to other parts of the city.
It will probably be much easier for you to find shops and restaurants around Kyoto Station.
However, the committee cannot give you any recommendations about hotels, because there are too many hotels around Kyoto Station.
The city of Kyoto welcomes a lot of foreign travelers all year around, so many of the hotels in Kyoto are accustomed to having foreign guests.
Please use whatever hotel-reservation websites on your own, and we are sure you can easily find a nice hotel suitable for your travel plan.
