workshop site Otsu Prince Hotel stands on the south edge of Biwako, the largest lake in Japan. Otsu, located about 10 km east of Kyoto, is rich in history and nature. Numerous historical sites, such as the Mii-dera and Ishiyama-dera temples, and seven out of the eight scenic spots known as the Omi Hakkei, are found in the city. The best known is Enryaku-ji Temple at Mt. Hiei, a World Cultural Heritage Site. In particular, from November through early December, these historic landmarks are surrounded by colorful autumn leaves, creating some breath-taking scenery. Since it takes only 10 minutes from Kyoto Station to Otsu Station by the JR Biwako Line, Otsu is easily accessed by way of JR Kyoto Station from major Japanese cities using the Shinkansen. It takes 85-100 minutes by JR lines from Kansai International Airport in Osaka to Otsu Station. A shuttle bus is available from Otsu Station to the Conference Site (10 minutes).
