The conference will be held in the Mangha Museum of Japanese Art And Technology. The Manggha Museum is the state institution popularizing Japanese culture in Poland, combining museum work with projects characteristic of a modern cultural institution. In addition to high artistic rank, attractive forms of public display are the primary criteria in the programming. The Manggha Museum is an active publisher. The publications serve not only as documentation of the exhibitions and lectures, but primarily as a source of reliable and well-researched information in a variety of fields, such as culture, art, architecture, anthropology, etc.

With its unique architecture and location across from the Royal Castle on the Wawel Hill, on a bend in the Vistula River, the Manggha Museum complex is one of the most beautiful sites in Krakow. Its multifunctional and attractive spaces make it a perfect venue for all manner of events and functions, ranging from conferences, workshops, and demonstrations to concerts, theatrical performances, and formal galas.
