Fukuoka e Yōkoso!Welcome to Fukuoka!
It is my pleasure to welcome you. As local host for the conference, I encourage all delegates to enjoy the wonders of Fukuoka while engaging in our exchange of scholarship and research.
Fukuoka is Japan’s gateway to Asia.Its ideal location, excellent transportation networks, multilingual resources, and incredible people have made Fukuoka a true international city.The endless opportunities for international business, study abroad programs, tourism, and other exchanges keeps Fukuoka moving forward in its embrace of all things international and multicultural.
Fukuoka also has a tremendous sense of history and tradition.The Fukuoka City Museum is located just minutes from our conference venue.It exhibits the history of the prefecture and proudly displays the King of Na gold seal, a national cultural treasure.Dazaifu Tenmangū, a shrine associated with academic success, and the neighboring Kyushu National Museum, Japan’s newest national museum, both offer opportunities to learn about Japan’s history and culture.
If experiencing the modern day excitements and adventures of Fukuoka is more of a priority, the city has plenty to offer.MARK IS FUKUOKA MOMOCHI, a 163-store shopping center is right next-door to our conference venue.Other great shopping and dining areas, like CANAL CITY and JR CITY HAKATA can be easily accessed via Fukuoka’s convenient subway system.
Fukuoka, like our Asia-Pacific Conference on Business and Social Science is all about international exchange and experiencing the diversities of cultures, thoughts, and people.During the conference, make the most of the opportunity to learn from our colleagues in our formal academic environment.In the evenings and during the socializing event, make the most of the opportunity to learn from our colleagues in a more relaxed environment.Together we can make it a successful conference.
