Goals of the symposium

During the past decade, marine scientists from China, Japan and Korea have worked actively in the research areas of Global Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics (GLOBEC) and Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER). Since GLOBEC era, a series of scientific meetings have been organised every two years. The China-Japan-Korea (CJK) IMBER Symposium series provides the countries’ scientists with the opportunity to collaborate, and share and exchange research achievements and ideas.

The goals of the 6th China-Japan-Korea IMBER Symposium are:

  •  to advance our understanding of marine biogeochemistry and ecosystem dynamics for the sustainable use of ecosystem services 
  •  to understand the response of various marine ecosystems to multi-stressors and drivers, from climate change to anthropogenic forcing.

Hotel information

The listed hotels are all close to The University of Tokyo. There are less expensive options further away accessible by subway.

Restaurants-Tokyo

Restaurants

The campus cafeteria near the venue is available.

The “Abreuvoir” restaurant & bar at the Mukougaoka Faculty House is also nearby. Abreuvoir restaurant website: www.mukougaoka-facultyhouse.jp/english/restaurant.php

Electricity

The voltage used throughout Japan is 100 volts, A.C. The frequency is 50 Hertz in eastern Japan (including Tokyo) and 60 Hertz in western Japan (including Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka). A convertible type of electrical appliance such as a hair dryer, travel iron and shaver will therefore be handy; otherwise a step-down transformer is required to convert the voltage. The plugs used in Japan are 2-flat-pin plugs as shown in the picture. It is therefore advised to purchase a plug adapter beforehand.

Currency exchange/credit cards

The Japanese currency is the Yen. Coins are available in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 50,100 and 500 yen and bank notes in denominations of 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, and 10,000 yen. International credit, debit and prepaid cards are widely accepted. You can withdraw cash using your international brand credit, debit, prepaid and cash cards at ATMs of the Japan Post Bank and Seven Bank at 7-Eleven Convenience stores.

Climate and weather

Autumn in Japan is pleasantly cool with a light breeze. Average daily temperatures in October range from a minimum of 15oC – a maximum of 21oC. 

Clothing: light jackets and sweaters.

Table below shows the time differences between Japan, Seoul and Beijing:

Seoul 0 hr
Beijing -1 hr

Emergency numbers

To report a crime, accident, or other emergency, dial ‘110’ from any telephone.

An English-language line to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police is available from Monday - Friday, from 8:30 to 17:15 pm, at 03-3501-0110.
