Hotel Information

Japan Hotel Information

Book Early! Everyone is required to stay at the conference hotels. Once the posted discounted rate deadline passes or the rooms sell out, whichever comes first, rooms may significantly increase in cost or be unavailable. The conference committee meeting rooms will be at the Portopia Hotel.

Reservation Process

Hotel and tour reservations must be made by 19 September through the KNT reservation form - not with the hotels. Please contact KNT with any questions about the form.
Notes: Some credit cards don't work with KNT's payment system so be prepared to pay by a wire transfer, including any bank fees.
Rooms at the hotels are limited on 19 November. People who have not completed the form and hoping to stay in Kobe that night may need to find rooms on their own for that night. There will be free luggage storage on Sunday, 20 September for people staying elsewhere on the 19th.
