Event date: 27/28 June 2023
The 2023 IAKS Study Trip offers a comprehensive sightseeing programme and perfect opportunities for networking with experts from Canada, Europe, and South America - and of course from Japan!
Architects, engineers, operators and scientists from a wide range of countries have already registered, including Argentina, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Look forward to the intercultural and interdisciplinary exchange, especially with the hosts from Japan.
Tokyo, the host city of the 2023 IAKS Study Trip, is a world city with a mix of the ultra-modern and the traditional, from skyscrapers to historic temples and shrines. This year’s study trip includes visits to six public sports and leisure facilities, ranging from innovative sports facilities to traditional Japanese facilities such as martial arts, and from Olympic facilities to public recreation facilities!
The travel package includes:
A two-day tour by coach with tour guides
Lunches including beverages at identified locations on the tour on 27 and 28 June
Evening dinner including beverages at the International House of Japan on 27 June
Interpreting services (Japanese - English) for international participants
Participants are requested to arrange their travel to Tokyo individually; the option to extend one’s stay is available.
The study trip base is the International House of Japan. It is conveniently located in the heart of Tokyo. The hotel is a renovated building designed by three masters of modern Japanese architecture (Junzo Sakakura, Kunio Maekawa, and Junzo Yoshimura), and has a tranquil atmosphere surrounded by gardens despite its central location in the city.
In addition to learning and experiencing the design and exchanging with management leaders of each facility, the IAKS Study Trip in Tokyo aims to enable participants to enjoy the city where the facilities are located, and to interact with experts from around the world while experiencing Japan’s unique sports facilities and initiatives.
Join this unique occasion to meet professionals from the international and Japanese sphere!
Registration fee for the study trip only (no accommodation) starting at EUR 675 for international delegates / JPY 75,000 for Japanese delegates.
