General Information
Clothing (Important Information)
The conference will be held at the Kenchoji (Zen Temple), so we may ask you to take off your shoes at the entrance of the temple. If you wear sandals, it will be convenient to take off.
The temple is very old and air conditioners might not work very well.
Please come in super casual clothes, no tie and no jacket. We recommend wearing e.g. polo shirts, aloha shirts or Jinbe (Japanese summer cloth).
T-shirts & short pants and sleeveless shirts are also fine.

Congress Language

All sessions will be conducted in English.

Passport and Visa

To visit Japan, you must have a valid passport. A visa is required for citizens of countries that do not have visa exempt agreements with Japan. Please contact the nearest Japanese Embassy or Consulate for visa requirements.


The Organizing Committee can accept no responsibility for accidents or damage to the private property of participants. Please make your own arrangements for health insurance and any other necessary insurance.


The temperature in Kamakura during the period of the Congress ranges between 21 - 27 degrees Celsius.

Currency in Japan is the Yen (yen/JPY). Notes are available in denominations of 10,000, 5,000, 2,000 and 1,000 yen. Coins are minted in denominations of 500, 100, 50, 10, and 1 yen. Exchange at the airport is recommended for your convenience. Most foreign currencies and travelers' checks can be exchanged at authorized foreign exchange banks. However we highly recommend purchasing travelers' checks or cash in Yen, U.S. dollars or Euros before leaving your home countries. A passport may be required for currency exchange services.

Credit Card

American Express, Diners Club, Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted at hotels, department stores, shops and restaurants.


Electric current is uniformly 100 volts, AC, throughout Japan, but with two different cycles: 50 in eastern Japan including Kamakura and Tokyo, and 60 in western Japan including Kyoto, Osaka and Nara. Leading hotels in major cities have two outlets of 100 and 230 volts but their sockets usually accept a two-leg plug only.


In Japan, tips are not necessary anywhere even at hotels and restaurants.


Shops and other sales outlets in Japan are generally open on Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays as well as weekdays from 10:00 to 20:00. Department stores, however, are closed on one weekday, differing by store, and certain specialty shops may not open on Sundays and national holidays.

Mobile Telephone

Mobile telephone rental is recommended, as most foreign cellular phones are not compatible with Japan's network. Mobile phone rental shops are conveniently located at Narita and other international airports. Please check with your mobile network provider prior to your departure.
You can use only NTT DOCOMO phone at Kenchoji. Other mobile phones e.g. au, iPhone etc., are unable to use there.
