Forgot to take my camera into town last night so only two photos for now.
This is the Kyoto International Conference Hall where we are meeting. The consenus of the ANZAC attendees is that it has a close resemblance to a Klingon battle crusier. This might explain how the Kyoto Protocol got agreed to here 🙂
And this is the Kyoto Takaragaike Prince Hotel where I am staying. It is a huge hotel (shaped like a UFO), and only has one set of lifts so one can almost end up with a 200 metre walk to your room from the lift. The hotel is pretty standard though with little facilities – no gym, no pool, broadband connections in suites only. It is next to a train station for getting into town which is useful.
