The conference will be held on June 23-24, 2007, on the Shirokane campus of Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo. You may also find it useful to look at the page of information about access to the conference site.
Here is a list of hotels within reasonable distance of both the
conference venue and train / subway connections. Most of the hotels,
particularly the larger ones, should have someone at the front desk who
can speak English. Room rates are subject to change. Participants are
also encouraged to investigate web-based discount hotel search sites
such as Travelocity or Expedia. If contacting hotels by phone or fax from abroad, add the country code for Japan (81).
The biggest group of hotels is near Shinagawa Station, which is also
very convenient for trains to/from Narita airport or the Kansai region
(see page of access information).
The Shinagawa area hotels include other major hotels at a wide range in prices, with some good
deals available on the internet.
The following lists are a good place to start:
"Accomodation in Tokyo for Less than JPY 15,000"
"Cheap Hotels in Tokyo"
The Shinagawa Prince Hotel
Excellent location, both
for transport, the walk or bus to the campus, and for restaurants, etc.
For room prices and online booking, see the hotel's "Internet Stay Plan" (English page).
Special conference reservations for the Takanawa Tobu Hotel have now
closed. Anyone wishing to make a reservation from now on should contact
the hotel directly, by telephone (03-3447-0111) or fax (03-3447-0117)
and must expect to pay the usual commercial rates.
If you decide to look further afield, there are many hotels within a
short subway or train ride away. Many sites list the hotels in terms of
area, either name of major station (Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ginza) or in
terms of the city wards. For your reference, the campus in "Minato-ku"
You may also
find smaller, reasonably-priced hotels in the Gotanda area. Gotanda Station is on the
JR Yamanote Line. It is 20 minutes' walking distance from the
campus. A bus also runs along Route 1 from the station to the campus.
The Hotel Royal Oak Gotanda
Single rooms priced between 4800 - 10800 yen
including breakfast. Its site is Japanese-only, unfortunately. See

One of Tokyo's major hotel areas is found near Shinjuku Station,
about 10 minutes by train to Meguro Station on the Yamanote Line.

but there are also a few budget hotels. Shinjuku hotels can easily be
found on internet discount hotel guides such as:
