Iwate University is just 30 minutes’ walk from the downtown Morioka. The typical temperature of Morioka in December is around 0.5° C with heavy snow fall, and hence the organizing committee requests the participants to take extra caution about the weather. On a sunny day, the participants would be able to enjoy the lovely view of the mount Iwate from the campus. There are many attractions like the ruin of Morioka castle, Hachimangu Shrine, Ho-onji temple, art and science museums located within the walking distance from the downtown Morioka. Shizukuishi, Hachimantai and outskirt of Morioka host a large number of famous natural hot springs. For skiing or snowboarding, there are several ski resorts around Morioka. An additional day after the meeting would be perfect to relax and enjoy the serene beauty of Iwate.
