As one of Japan’s iconic cultural hubs, combining traditional practices with an innovative spirit, Kyoto is an ideal venue to address the theme of this conference. By participating in ICOM Kyoto 2019, we hope you can get a flavor for our museums and the communities that they represent in Kyoto, Japan.
