In and Around Tokyo

Tokyo, officially Tokyo Metropolis, is one of the 47 prefectures of Japan. Tokyo is the capital of Japan, the center of the Greater Tokyo Area, and the most populous metropolitan area in the world. It is the seat of the Japanese government and the Imperial Palace, and the home of the Japanese Imperial Family. Tokyo is in the Kantō region on the southeastern side of the main island of Honshu and includes the Izu Islands and Ogasawara Islands.

Tokyo has many museums, national and private theaters for traditional forms of Japanese drama (noh and kabuki), and modern drama, fashion and shopping areas, such as Ginza and Aoyama. The cuisine in Tokyo is internationally acclaimed.

Climate and Dress

Tokyo’s average temperature in March is 57°F (14°C) and the average low temperature at night is 37°F (3°C).

Business casual attire is encouraged for the conference. Meeting rooms are well air-conditioned and the inside temperature might be slightly warmer or cooler than you find comfortable. Therefore, it is suggested that you dress in layers (it’s a good idea to have a light jacket and/or shawl with you).
