2nd Japanese-American-German Frontiers of Science Symposium

Conference information

Kyoto is the capital of Kyoto Prefecture, as well as a major part of the Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe metropolitan area. It has a population close to 1.5 million.

From the end of the Nara Period (794), Kyoto has functioned as the crossroad of Japanese history. From its beginnings as the Kunikyo and Nagaokakyo settlements until the Emperor moved to Tokyo, it was the capital of Japan for over 1000 years. Even today, Kyoto is the cultural center of Japan, and continues to be loved by Japanese and people of the world alike.
