SHIRAHAMA-SO

Throughout our stay, accommodations and activities will be held at Shirahama Hotel

Where is it ?

Shirahama-so accommodation facilities are situated in central Japan, close to the ancient capital of Kyoto on the shore of famous lake Biwa.

 

When and how to get there ?

For overseas participants we recommend to land in Japan a few days before the event, so as to get gently over the jet lag while getting accustomed to Japanese way of life. Through the NEWS page of this web site, the organization team will propose different leisurely activities to spend either before or after the gasshuku.

Then, on the day of participation, you will go to the Kyoto central station and take a train to Omi-takashima station. According to arrival times, regular shuttle buses will be provided to take groups of participants to the Shirahama Hotel.

Further information will be provided as we shall approach the event.
