Kyoto has nurtured a unique culture over more than 1200 years since the glory of Heiankyo. This culture reveals in beauty of the four seasons and forms the heart of Japanese hospitality.
Kyoto has 17 temples, shrines and castles inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List and about 2,000 temples, shrines and other historical sites. These historical buildings and places are integrated with diverse facets of culture, including tea ceremony, flower arrangement and Noh.
Kyoto International Conference Center was established in 1966 in this mecca of Japanese culture, as Japan's first state-sponsored international conference center.
Kyoto International Conference Center has staged over 16,000 conferences since it opened. ICC Kyoto has not only played a key role in the history of international conferences in Japan but is a flagship platform for large-scale conventions in Asia as well.
We continue to be a leader in Japanese conventions and a base for diffusing information and values from Kyoto to the wider world.
