Other matters of importance

SKIF Headquarters will not be arranging lodging for this seminar. As such, participants are requested to take care of all necessary lodging arrangements on their own.  Late March/early April is a busy time of the year for hotels in the Tokyo area (particularly in and around Kamata) and several hotels in the area are already completely booked for the period. Accordingly, we strongly recommend that you reserve lodging as early as possible.

The venue where the seminar will be held is located in walking distance (approx. 6 minutes) from Heiwajima Station on the Keikyu Main Line. Accordingly, participants may want to consider lodging near Shinagawa* Station or in the vicinity of Kamata Station (both of which offer easy access to the seminar venue), or somewhere in between these two locations.

  • Shinagawa is the largest district in the southwestern region of Tokyo and offers a large selection of city and business hotels.

Distances between various train stations

  • Heiwajima Station - Shinagawa Station: approx. 10 minutes by train
  • Heiwajima Station - Keikyu Kamata Station: approx. 5 minutes by train

Note: Although JR Shinagawa Station and Keikyu Shinagawa Station are located directly next to each other, Kamata Station and Keikyu Kamata Station are separated by a distance requiring about a 10-minute walk.

SKIF Headquarters is located at Kugahara Station (about a 1-minute walk from the station) on the Tokyu Ikegami Line, which is approximately 7 minutes by train from Kamata Station.
