Accommodation options

Delegates coming to the World Congress can choose from a wide variety of accommodation options. The associations involved in the World Congress cannot recommend one specific hotel, but we have identified a variety of search methods and accommodations (at a range of different prices) with easy access to the Congress venue. These options are:

Web search
We suggest delegates run a search on one of the following sites to ensure best prices available are found: Google, TripAdvisor, For example, a Google search for ‘Hotels near the International Conference Center Hiroshima’ currently generates lots of useful hits for accommodation near the congress venue at a range of prices.

Hiroshima hotel list
Yokoso accommodation linkWe have worked with a Japanese booking agency to create a booking website, which highlights a selection of hotels near the congress venue. Please be aware that this company has negotiated advantageous rates with some of the hotels but, for others, has been unable to compete with deals negotiated by large international accommodation search engines. We recommend, therefore, that delegates compare prices with one of the international accommodation search engines to ensure they are getting the best value for money.

Lots of delegates may wish to consider room sharing or options for booking into a hotel or Airbnb apartment alongside friends and fellow congress attendees. Please feel free to join our closed Facebook group to discuss these points and to find people to share with:
