International Conference

International conference

An international conference was held at a hotel in Hachioji. The staff worked on various ideas so that the participants could get a sense of the special atmosphere of Hachioji. For example, the staff wore traditional Happi coats to welcome the participants, and sent them on their way with the help of ladies dressed as Hachioji Geisha. The staff suggested Tokyo Kokeshi dolls, made in Hachioji, as a souvenir for the organizers. They also arranged a tour of the dolls’ production site to help further understanding of this traditional Hachioji industry. The view of Mt. Fuji at dusk was also greatly admired by the international participants.
