"U Thant Hall" at United Nations University (UNU) in Tokyo-Aoyama is a nice and well-known place for hosting many important events. It will be used for the first day of ICFM5 on 27 September. The UDX-Akihabara in Tokyo is also quite nice for presentation and discussion and very convenient in access. It is located just in front of Akihabara train station where hotels are also nearby. This is a new type city center with many interesting activities including “Otaku” culture in addition to electrical goods. The conference rooms are in quiet and cozy atmosphere good for oral presentations, posters, and various discussions.
