Letter of Invitation

An official letter of invitation will be sent by the Organizing Committee upon request to those who have registered and paid the registration fee. However, such solicited invitations will not include an offer for payment of any expenses, such as registration, travel or hotel accommodation for the Congress.

Certificate of Attendance

The certificate of attendance will be issued and distributed to all participants at the Registration Desk.

Foreign Exchange and Credit Cards

The Congress can only accept Japanese yen in cash or Master/Visa credit cards at the registration desk. Foreign currency exchange is available at major hotels, banks, and international airports including the Fukuoka Airport. Major credit cards are widely accepted at hotels and shops. You can withdraw money using credit cards issued by VIAS, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club, etc. at Japanese Post Office ATMs, but please verify this with your credit card company before departure from your home country. It is suggested you bring sufficient cash in yen for your needs.

A 7-day pass costs ¥29,110 (ordinary class) or ¥38,880 (first class). URL:
