Accommodation 宿泊 Accommodations are not available immediately near the conference venue. The conference organizers suggest that participants book a hotel near Niigata station. The UNP campus is a short train or bus ride from there. While NEAR does not officially endorse any hotels, the following are some suggestions for accommodations in convenient locations.
Access アクセス The conference is being held on the campus of The University of Niigata Prefecture in the west end of the city, near Ogata station. For travel from downtown Niigata, we recommend using the train. The JR Hakushin line runs from Niigata Station to Ogata station approximately every 30 minutes in the morning. Ogata Station is the second stop from Niigata Station, right after Higashi Niigata. Volunteers will be available at Ogata Station to help participants find directions to the conference site.
