There are numerous hotels in Sapporo and you can self-book rooms through internet, but we recommend two hotels that are conveniently located from the main train station and Sapporo campus.

[Option 1] Hotel Mystays Sapporo Aspen

This hotel is a three-minute walk from the JR Sapporo Station, and a ten-minute walk to the conference venue in the university campus. You can self-book your room by internet, phone or fax. For more information about the hotel, please see here.

This hotel has agreed to reserved 20 non-smoking single rooms for five nights from September 10 this year for participants of LORI VI. The rate for the room the hotel offers is the same as the cheapest rate the hotel offers through internet. If you wish to stay in one of the rooms reserved for LORI VI paticipants, write an e-mail to yamada[at]let.hokudai.ac.jp. In your mail, please specify whether you need breakfast or not. If you wish to stay longer or on different days, please book your room by yourself. The hotel has more rooms, and to book, you don't have to mention LORI VI.

As is said above, the hotel has more rooms than the rooms reserved for LORI VI. So, even after the rooms the hotel reserves for LORI VI participants are all booked, it may still be possible to book other rooms, and to book, you don't have to mention LORI VI.

[Option 2 (Budget Option)] Toyoko-Inn Sapporo-eki Nishi-guchi Hokudai Mae

This budget hotel is located in front of the University main gate. You can make a self-booking by internet, phone or fax. Please see here.
