JGRG is a series of workshops held in Japan every year since 1991, which has provided a place where people can exchange ideas and pursue future trends of research. The workshop will cover a wide area of research related to general relativity and gravitation.
Important Notice (Transportation from Kansai International airport)
Due to renovation of a highway connecting Kobe and Kansai
International airport (KIX), the airport bus is basically not
available during November 20-30 (normally it takes one hour, but they
say that it will take more than two hours in this period). We
recommend participants coming from KIX to take trains or a high-speed
boat as explained below.
The easiest way to Sannomiya station (downtown Kobe) is
1) take Kansai-Airport Express "Haruka" from the airport to Shin-Osaka station (50mins):https://www.westjr.co.jp/global/en/travel/shopping/access/train.html
2) take JR Kobe line to Sannomiya station (30mins).
It takes 1.5 hours and costs 2730 JPY in total. There are several
other train options (cheaper, but either longer or more complicated),
but we refer those with interests to google map.
Another option is to take a high-speed boat:
They provide a discount service for non-Japanese visitors (500 JPY for
boat from KIX to Kobe airport + 340 JPY for portliner from Kobe
airport to Sannomiya). It is slightly complicated, but the following
webpage provides information useful enough to make it:
