The MWA project meeting will be held at Kobayashi-Maskawa Institute (KMI) in Nagoya University, in the colloquium room.


There are not many hotels near the University, but you can easily access the University from the city center by subway. Sakae or Kanayama station may be the most convenient as you can come to the University without changing trains using the subway Meijo line. Nagoya and Fushimi stations are also convenient as the subway Higashiyama line is the most frequent.


From Chubu Centrair International Airport (Centrair):

  • Take the Meitetsu line to Kanayama Station. The train fee is 810 yen, while the Limited Express, called μ-SKY, has only reserved seats and costs extra 360 yen. It takes 25 mins to Kanayama station if you take μ-SKY, and 35-50 mins if you take a rapid or semi-rapid express. Check the time table for the details.
  • Then take the subway Meijo line from Kanayama station (M01) to Nagoya-Daigaku station (M18). It takes about 20 mins and costs 270 yen.
Getting to KMI:
  • The MWA project meeting will be held at Kobayashi-Maskawa Institute (KMI) in Nagoya University. Use Exit 2 or 3 at Nagoya-Daigaku Station.
  • Then walk to the north along the big street, and you will soon find the Engineering and Science building on your right hand side. (You have to cross the street if you get out from Exit 3.) More details can be found here.
