2020 ISPNO Family Day Event Information Guide


The family day event will be held on Sunday, June 21th, starting at 0900.  The family day event is organized by the Japanese patient’s family members and not associated with the doctor’s symposium side.  The event is divided between two different programs at that same time; a main presentation for the adults and a fun day for the children. Both events are totally free to attend.  Adults can attend the children’s fun day; however  If you wish to attend, please let us know in advance.  The kids will enjoy Boccia tournament.   


Directions to Karuizawa Train station:


Unfortunately, we do not provide any transportation service and getting to the event is the responsibility of the individual.  Once arrival to Tokyo, either Haneda (HND) or Narita (NRT) airport, take a bus or train to the Tokyo train station.  The Tokyo train station is big and can feel overwhelming, but don’t panic, it's easy to navigate.  Walk to the shinkansen (bullet train) gate and purchase a ticket to Karuizawa train station.  It is about an hour train ride.  The Karuizawa train station is small and there will be directional information about the hotel and event.




The family day committee are organizing the hotels for the guests traveling from overseas to Japan.  There was a small travel grant provided by us to help subsidy some of the travel costs incurred from those guests traveling from overseas locations.  The size of the grant is unknown at this time and will be determined later. 


In the event of a cancellation, the ISPNO committee will not be responsible for reimbursing travel expenses incurred.
