In the Kansai region, which mainly consists of three metropolitan areas of Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe.
There are a lot of urban geographers. Therefore, we want to request them to make a plan for scientific excursions.

We will announce the scientific excursions through our mailing list: iguurban@unil.ch
