Meeting rooms and accommodations can be rented during our off-season (Seikan) spring and fall periods, when the staff is on hand for support services. To check on availability, please contact our office. Because the center is also scheduled for some Zen events during the Seikan period, the lead time for booking our facilities may be relatively short.
