This workshop is supported by RIKEN ( The Institute of Physical and
Chemical Research )and by Yukawa Institute. The scientific program is to
be focused on the upcoming polarized collider RHIC. The
workshop is also an annual meeting of RHIC Spin Collaboration (RSC).
Some important information:
How to arrive safely at the workshop:
All the speakers are kindly requested to submit a abstract to the
organizer before the workshop, which will be published "Soryusiron-Kenkyu",
monthly-issued news article of Yukawa Institute. He/She is also requested
to come with a copy of His/Her transparencies. Those transparencies
are compiled for a volume of "The proceedings of the RIKEN BNL Research
Yukawa Institute is twin building. The workshop is held in the room
K206 in the newer northern building.
Welcome drink will be in Shiran Kaikan from 19:00 on 12th.
Dinner will be in Touzan-sou from 19:30 on 13th.
The final version of the program is now available (see below).
On Saturday (14th) the main entrance of the Yukawa is open until 9:30 AM,
and locked out for the weekend. Later than that you phone 7056 from the
telephone in the box located at the small entrance door on the right hand
side of the new building.
Email access is available at Yukawa Institute.

Organization ( * to be confirmed ):
Access, Location & Hotels
The Yukawa Institute is located in the north campus of Kyoto University.
The ACCESS GUIDE and
will help you to reach the institute and your assigned hotel.
Most of the foreign attendance are to be accommodated in Shiran-Kaikan
or Kyodai-Kaikan. Both of them are within a walking distance (20min) from
the Yukawa Institute. See the map to find the location. Once you have requested
for a hotel in Kyoto, you will find your name in the RESERVATION
There is a student cafeteria inside Kyoto University (see map). They
serve meals at very low price ( less than 500 yen ) with tolerable quality
but at least very Japanese. Around the University there are many restaurants
from students-class to jetset-class. Detail info can be obtained from http://www2.yukawa.kyoto-u.ac.jp/~yitpic/kyodo/restaurants.html.
The dinner party will be held at Tozan-sou from 19:30 on Oct 13th.
The fee must be paid at the registration period. Food will be Japanese
There is no officially arranged program for sight seeing. Kyoto is
a rather small town and many interesting places can be reached on foot.
Here are some recommendations. Please find your own Kyoto.
Hotel (walk) Ginkakuji-temple (taxi) Heian-Shrine (walk) Chion-in (walk)
Yasaka-Shrine (walk) Kiyomizu-Temple (walk) National-Museum (taxi) Hotel;
You can give up at any place and take a taxi or a bus to go back.
Nishiki-Kozi street; Traditional Japanese food market, full of Japanese
English-speaking town tour: There are two bus tours a day with English
guidance. Morning tour covers Nijo-castle, Kinkaku(Golden shrine), Gosyo
(Old Imperial palace) and Kyoto handicraft center; afternoon tour covers
Heian-shrine, Sanjyu-sangendo and kiyomizu temple. Price is 5000 yen for
half day, and 10400 yen (lunch included) for full day. For further information,
please dial 075-341-1413 (English speaking).
Kyoto handicraft center: Bunch of shops for Japanese crafts with demonstrations.
For foreign tourists this is an easy place to shop; no language problem.
Walking distance from your hotel (see map). For detail information dial
Japanese currency is Yen. There are 10000, 5000, 2000 and 1000 yen
notes; 500, 100, 50, 10, 5 and 1 yen coins. You may have difficulty to
change foreign currency in a town since not all the banks are authorized
to do so for the currency other than US dollar. It is recommended to make
money exchange at the airport. It is recommended to carry some cash since
small shops and taxi will scarcely accept the credit cards. Checks are
normally accepted only in banks.
There is no custom of "tipping" in Japan. You just need to pay the
amount on a bill. For good hotels and restaurants service fee is required
and is already included in the bill (normally 10%). Consumption tax (5%)
is applied for the amount of your purchase (tax is normally not included
To make an international telephone call, use a public telephone machine
which is marked as ISD (international Subscription Dialing) available (green
body with golden front panel), and dial 0051-(your country code)-.....
In the North campus ISD telephones are available near the co-op cafeteria.
Normally public telephone machines accept only a telephone card which can
be purchased at a vending machine, a KIOSK or a Cigarette shop. Please
note that you will use a few thousand yen easily for an international call.
An area call is cheap (10yen/3min). The area code for Kyoto is 075 which
can be omitted inside the town, i.e. 075-753-3871 from Airport to En'yo's
office, and 753-3871 from Kyoto station.
