The very low cost of registration for attendance of the four days of ESC19 presentations and associated special events reflects the considerable fiscal support given to the event by the International Association of Shin Buddhist Culture.

The organizers also sincerely thank Nish Hongwanji, our mother temple in Kyoto, Japan for their support of this event, including their hosting of a very special Gala Meal that will take place on the last day of the conference in the prestigious Whitebeam Suit, adjoining the Atrium of the Southampton Solent University Conference Centre, all housed within their stunning new flag-ship building known as ‘the Spark’.

Though it has not yet been officially confirmed, the organizers do most sincerely hope that the 24th Zenmon-sama of Nishi Hongwanji, Ohtani Koshin (Dharma Name: Shaku Sokunyo) will honor us with his acceptance of our invitation to be our very special guest at various ESC19 events.
