Kyoto Conference Centre

They signed the Kyoto Convention there. The Kyoto International Conference Centre was certainly a building for for the occasion. But it wasn't a conventional one by any means.

It was inspired of the days I the shoguns and warriors ruling the old Japan. It had been renovated over the years and certainly felt modern in the inside, but you couldn't help but felt that it was built in the 70s. Tall ceilings, and broad walkways. And the gardens and water features surrounding it was a sight to behold. And I was lucky that I was there during the time of Sakura bloom. It was not just gorgeous, it was amazing!

The Convention Centre was located on the north part of town, at the beginning of one of the two subway line crossing the city. This made the travel from the centre to downtown easy. But getting from the hotel was a bit more tricky. I took a cab on the first day and it took me 20 minutes of journey time.

The best part about the place was having lunch in the open by the lake. In the breeze and bright sunshine with the Sakura blooming, it was an amazing feeling.
