comfortable) hotel rooms can also be arranged.

and arrange a recommendation letter by
his/her PhD advisor or host Professor, no later than Apr. 30, 2003.

Okura Frontier Hotel Tsukuba ,
Okura Frontier Hotel Tsukuba Epochal ,
Hotel Grand Shinonome
Hotel Route Tsukuba ,
all of which are
located in the central area of Tsukuba City.
All the participants, including invited speakers, should make the
hotel reservation through the form available on the accommodation page,
no later than June 14.
The reservation process is handled by a travel agency
under the first-come-first-served basis.
The reservation is not effective until a deposit of 10,000 yen is paid.
Okura Frontier Hotel Tsukuba is adjacent to the "Tsukuba Center" bus
terminal, where direct buses from the Narita Airport and from the JR
(Japan Railways) Tokyo Station arrive. Okura Frontier Hotel Tsukuba
Epochal is about 800 meters south of the bus terminal and is directly
connected to the Tsukuba International Congress Center
where the conference will be held.
Hotel Grand Shinonome is about 500 meters west of the bus terminal,
which is an easy walking distance
from both the bus terminal and the Congress Center.
Hotel Route Tsukuba is about 1000 meters east of the bus terminal,
from which a daily shuttle service to the Congress Center will be provided.
Tsukuba is located about 60km north of Tokyo and about 40km
northwest of the Narita International Airport. The Tsukuba
Center and the above mentioned hotels are in the central
area of Tsukuba.
How to reach Tsukuba is explained in the web page
at CCP, Univ. Tsukuba,
at KEK, and
at Tsukuba information center.
The easiest way is to take a direct bus service, called the
Airport Liner "NATT'S", from the Narita Airport through
Tsukuba Center to Tsuchiura Station. Tickets are available
at the "Airport Limousine Keisei" counter on the 1st floor
in the arrival lobby. (Remind that the "Airport Limousine
Bus" counter on the same floor, by another company, does not
take care of the NATT'S bus service.) The fare is 2,540 yen
per person. The bus leaves the Airport every ~ 90 minutes
(see the time schedule), and it takes about one hour and 40
minutes to Tsukuba Center. (Since the bus does not go
through Japanese Expressways and is hardly caught in a
traffic jam, the schedule would be reliable.) The last bus
leaves the Airport at 20:00. There are four bus stops:
"Shin-Tone-Machi" (which is skipped occasionally),
"Hitachino-Ushiku Station", "Tsukuba Center" and "Tsuchiura
Station"; you should ride off the bus at Tsukuba Center (not
The easiest way to move to the Narita Airport from Tsukuba is again to
take the direct bus service. The ticket going to the airport, however,
needed to be reserved and purchased at least one day in advance.
