Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Juichi Ito, MD, PhD    Please allow me to welcome all of you to the Sixth International Symposium on Meniere's Disease and Inner Ear Disorders, which will take place in Kyoto, Japan, from November 14 to 17, 2010.
    This is the first time that the Symposium is being held in Japan. I am very grateful and honored to host it here in Kyoto, and I hope that, with your collaboration and contribution, it will be a great success.
    This Symposium will include a high quality scientific program focusing on Meniere's disease and vestibular research, and in addition expand its coverage to include "Inner Ear Disorders" such as sensorineural hearing disturbance (SNHD), in order to reflect the remarkable recent progress in the fields of basic science such as molecular biology, genetics, and regenerative medicine.
    Kyoto, the Symposium venue, which was the capital of Japan for more than 1000 years from 794 A.D. to 1868, is one of the most historic and beautiful cities in Japan. It has 1600 Buddhist temples and 400 Shinto shrines, and is the heart of traditional arts and religions. It is also a place of science and culture, for Kyoto has about 40 colleges and universities.
    Late autumn is the most beautiful season in Kyoto, especially as the mountains are covered with burning red and yellow leaves, and the temperature is comfortable.
    We are planning many attractive social programs for all participants, including accompanying persons so that they may enjoy Kyoto.
    We look forward to welcoming you to Kyoto in November, 2010.

"Juichi Ito"
