Pre & Post-Conference Tour

Like so much of life, Tokyo is the sum of its contradictions - a sprawling city, which might almost be the definition of 'metropolis', yet at the same time, possibly the most charming communion of 10 million people one could conceive.

This year, we have the options to hike in Fuji-Hakone National Park, attend the November Grand Sumo Tourment, visit the Kingakuji Golden Pavilion, and many other opportunities. Whether you have half-a-week, or just half-an-hour, do step out and find the little corner of this metropolis that turns out to be your Tokyo!

For those of you who are travelling from afar and plan to spend some more time in this beautiful location, our local agent has put together a pre & post conference tour programme .
