A Trip for Japanese Local Cuisine

In the nearby Seta River (in Otsu city) is an ancient mount of shijimi clam shells (freshwater clams), which suggests that they have been a special product of this area for quite some time. Moreover, since the Meiji era (late 19th century), the name "Omi gyu" (Omi beef) has become famous throughout Japan. At the Sensinryo restaurant of our conference city, Otsu, you can enjoy shijimi clam rice which is famous throughout the Ishiyama area, the adjacent area of our conference, and also some "Omi gyu". This trip can be arranged by the local organizing committee for IFSA-SCIS 2017 for participants who are interested in one of those special dishes at Sensinryo restaurant by registration through the conference website by May 31, 2017.
