Kyoto is continuing to grow its offering to the conference, events and incentives market with the launch of a new venue.
Kyoto Aquarium opened in 2012 and is a new attraction for business visitors to Kyoto. Located in Umekoji Park, the aquarium is surrounded by parkland; it is an ideal place to bring meetings professionals for a range of events as it offers both high end conferencing facilities as well as an unusual location for receptions and dinner.
The venue can be hired out for evening events such as products launches, receptions and gala dinners. One of its biggest advantages is that almost all of its events space is indoors or covered so events will not be affected by the weather. Guests can can eat in front of the large tank or walk around and take in the whole aquarium, providing an exceptional backdrop.
Kyoto’s Aquarium boasts a 1,500 seat dolphin stadium, while smaller spaces can accommodate from 80 to 350 people. The aquarium has first class technical capabilities which help clients make their events more creative in such a spectacular environment.
