The meeting will be held at Kavli IPMU on the University of Tokyo campus in Kashiwa. Kashiwa is located about 10 km northeast of Tokyo. There are two airports that service the Tokyo area, Narita airport and Haneda airport. The directions to Kashiwa will depend on the airport, so please find the appropriate directions below.
There are two train stations in Kashiwa, the JR Kashiwa Station and the Tsukuba Express (TX) Kashiwanoha Campus Station. If you are staying at the Mitsui Garden Hotel Kashiwanoha, Hotel Del Prado or Hotel Sunoak Kashiwanoha, you will travel to the Kashiwanoha Campus Station. If you are staying at Crest Hotel Kashiwa, Kashiwa Plaza Hotel, Sotetsu Fresa Inn Chiba-Kashiwa or other hotels in central Kashiwa, you will travel to the JR Kashiwa Station. Bus routes from both stations to the University of Tokyo campus are listed below. Routes from both airports to both train stations are also listed.
For train and bus transport, most lines (including the local buses in Kashiwa) will accept the Suica or Pasmo IC Cards, which allow for payment of fares by tapping a card reader. Either Suica or Pasmo cards can be purchased at most train stations. Some express trains will require the purchase of an additional express fare ticket beyond the base fare, so simply tapping your IC card will not be sufficient. Local Tobu buses from Kashiwa or Kashiwanoha Campus Stations accept the IC cards. You simply need to tap the card readers when entering and exiting the bus. If you pay by coin, collect a paper slip when entering the bus which specifies your starting bus stop. Use the display at the front of the bus to determine your owed fair when you exit the bus. Payment is made at the front of the bus when exiting.
