Invitation to the Conference Banquet

  • Time and Date: 19:00–22:00, August 9 (Tuesday)
  • Venue: Sushi Izakaya MACCHAN
  • Participation fee: JPY 8,000
  • (Application is received through ICCOPT 2016 web system)
  • The Conference Banquet will be offered in a cozy Japanese Izakaya (Tavern) style. The Izakaya restaurant is located in the heart of Roppongi, within walking distances from GRIPS or Tokyo Metro/Toei Subway Roppongi stations. It is a hidden place, far from the street noises. Our staff will guide you to the restaurant from GRIPS, because otherwise it is hard to find the place. Please be quiet when you enter the restaurant; the neighbor is a residential area.
  • Enjoy Sushi, Sashimi and other specialities exclusively chosen for the banquet. You can drink all you want; beer, Japanese sake (rice wine), Shochu (Japanese distilled spirits), wine, cocktails and soft drinks.
  • The restaurant staff will serve you as a group; there's no `your' server, but every staff will serve you when he/she can. Just call a server loudly to ask your drink. This is truly Japanese style.
  • Only 230 tickets will be sold through ICCOPT Web System due to the capacity of the restaurant. Only if they are not sold out, remaining tickets will be sold at the venue of the conference.
  • If you need a vegetarian menu, please let us know by sending email to banquet<at>
