Hotel information for the 8th Face to face meeting: Aug 1 - Aug 3, 2013 @ University of Toyama
Please reserve your hotel by yourself ! We will NOT RESERVE hotel on behalf of you.
The best way is that you reserve hotel near Toyama station. There are a lot of hotels, shops and restaurants there. It takes about 20 minutes from Toyama station to University of Toyama by tram or bus.
I am not so sure that staffs of hotels can speak English because I have never asked something at Japanese hotels in English. In some hotels, you can ask in English. But I am afraid that such hotels are expensive.
