Kwansei Gakuin University (Nishinomiya Uegahara Campus) is located in the city of Nishinomiya, which is about halfway between Kobe and Osaka.
There are many different accommodation options. We strongly recommend you book your rooms as early as possible, given that there are other big events to be held in the area. There are rooms reserved for the conference at some hotels, about which we will make announcements in February 2019.
There are very limited hotels in the city of Nishinomiya, but there are many hotels in 1) the Takarazuka area, 2) the Umeda area (Osaka) and 3) the central Kobe area.
From the Takarazuka area to the venue
There are two major hotels in this area, at which rooms are reserved for the conference. We are negotiating on a shuttle bus from Takarazuka Hotel to Kwansei Gakuin University (which takes 30 minutes or longer, subject to traffic conditions). You can also use the Hankyu Imazu line to Koto-en, where you can change to a bus (total of 30 minutes).
From the Umeda (Osaka) Station to the venue
From Hankyu Umeda Station (7 minutes by foot from JR Osaka Station) it takes 12 minutes to Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station by an express train on the Hankyu Kobe line.
From the Sannomiya Station (Central Kobe) to the venue
From Hankyu Sannnomiya Station, it takes 14 minutes to Nishinomiya-Kitaguchi Station by an express train on the Hankyu Kobe line.
