For all coming to 10th ICRS in Okinawa

   I would like to advice to make your stay in Okinawa more comfortable.

   Please note that it's not so easy to change foreign currency to 
Japanese yen, once the symposium
starts. Banks in Japan are opened at 09:00-15:00 on Monday to Friday, and 
the symposium place is far
from Naha, a big city in Okinawa where you can find lots of banks.
Thus I recommend you to exchange either at Tokyo(Narita Airport) or 
Osaka(Kansai Airport) due
to no exchange booth available at the domestic terminal in Okinawa Airport.
# see travel information page of ICRS website.

  You need to carry certain amount of cash as credit cards are not as 
widely used here
compared with other countries(e.g, Australia, the U.S.A)
