Striking modern buildings. There appear to be no vertical walls - all are curved or angled. Each hall is different and interesting. Beautiful views onto a large park with a lake. If you're interested in architecture, this is well worth a visit.

Teees hugged concrete and steel structure is what gives you a simple but elegant feel. Like this place, fresh air, efficient layout, and easy subway access.

I stayed for a week-long conference in the fall, with beautiful weather and increasingly colorful trees. Kyoto is a must-see place, with history and culture everywhere. The International Conference Center is in a gorgeous location next to a lake and tucked between steep green-covered hills....More

most gorgeous architectural gems, including the
majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene
artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the
bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji

There is a train station a block away, and it is very easy to travel downtown by train. They can also arrange tours for you - Kyoto has some beautiful temples, and lovely gardens. I totally recommend the "Golden Pavilion."
