Some quick info for people going to Kyoto for SODA 2012:

  • Hipmunk is a very useful tool for comparing flights based on both price and flight duration.  Great for finding inexpensive international flights that don’t involve 5 hour layovers or a large number of stops.
  • Kyoto is an interesting and beautiful city [1].  Matsuo Basho wrote: “Even in Kyoto, I long for Kyoto”.  Wikitravel has a pretty good basic web page on Kyoto.
  • If you have an extra day or two after the conference, a ryokan (a traditional Japanese inn) is a great place to spend the night.
[1] I lived in Kyoto for 3 fun months while an undergrad at Stanford.
