Goodtimes Together

I am pleased to announce that the 14th Congress of the International Society of Forensic Radiology and Imaging (ISFRI) is scheduled to take place from May 15th (Thursday) to May 17th (Saturday) in 2025 at the Fukui International Activities Plaza. Following the web-based annual meeting of the 11th Congress of ISFRI, we are now returning to an on-site event with renewed enthusiasm for the second time in Japan. We express our sincere gratitude to all the members who have recommended and supported us, and it is truly an honor for us to host this exceptional event.

In this congress, various research findings from diverse fields such as postmortem imaging, anthropology, crime scene investigation, forensic veterinary medicine, forensic photography, forensic radiography, forensic nursing, and others will be presented. We aim to contribute to the further enhancement of the daily tasks of the participants by providing a platform for the dissemination of knowledge. Particularly noteworthy is the anticipated lecture by Dr. Shiotani, a renowned forensic radiologist representing Japan, covering fundamental knowledge to the latest insights in postmortem imaging. We look forward to the enlightening discourse.

The conference program will include presentations based on research outcomes from each sub-committee, facilitating information sharing for future society activities. On the first day, as part of the lunch on lecture, Dr. Kawabe, an expert in paleontology, will present research on dinosaur fossils. Following his presentation, an excursion visit to the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum is planned, allowing members to interact with actual dinosaur fossils and partake in an engaging exploration. On the second and third days, ample time and space will be allocated for discussions, including specialized sessions, providing an opportunity for in-depth discussion.

As a venue for social meetings (cocktail party), we are delighted to collaborate with Kokuryu Shuzo to introduce participants to Japanese sake culture at ESHIKOTO, providing a deep experience of Japanese culture. On the second night, the customary gala dinner will be arranged, fostering camaraderie among attendees.

Fukui is conveniently located just 1 hour and 30 minutes from Kyoto. We hope that participants will explore the traditional Japanese culture in Kyoto after the congress.

We are confident that this annual meeting in Fukui will be a crucial milestone for the future development of ISFRI, bringing together and GOODTIMES TOGHETHER participants from around the world. We eagerly await the participation of many distinguished individuals!

Getting to FUKUI

From Haneda Airport to Fukui Station:

When planning your trip from Haneda Airport (IATA code: HND), also known as Tokyo International Airport, to Fukui Station, there are convenient transportation options:

  • Haneda Airport, located close to the Tokyo city center, handles a wide range of domestic flights. To reach Fukui directly from Haneda, you can travel to Tokyo Station and board the Hokuriku Shinkansen that takes you straight to Fukui Station without the need for transfers. 
  •  From Haneda Airport, take the Tokyo Monorail or Keikyu Line to reach Tokyo Station. From there, catch the Hokuriku Shinkansen ‘Kagayaki’ or ‘Hakutaka’ services, which offer a direct route to Fukui Station, providing a comfortable and swift journey.

From Narita Airport to Fukui:

For those starting their journey at Narita Airport (IATA code: NRT), known as Tokyo-Narita, the route to Fukui involves the following:

  • Narita Airport, while being a bit farther from central Tokyo, offers a vast network of international and domestic flights. To get to Fukui, take the Narita Express (N’EX) or the Keisei Skyliner to Tokyo Station, then transfer to the Hokuriku Shinkansen direct to Fukui Station. 
  •  On board the Hokuriku Shinkansen ‘Kagayaki’ or ‘Hakutaka’ from Tokyo Station, you can enjoy a direct and expedited trip to Fukui Station. This route is a straight shot from Tokyo to Fukui, allowing you to experience the comfort and speed of Japan’s Shinkansen trains.

Both Haneda and Narita airports provide facilities and services to assist travelers in making these connections smoothly. It’s advisable to familiarize yourself with the train schedules and routes before your journey to ensure a seamless and enjoyable trip to Fukui.
