Japan conjures up all sorts of images just at the mention of
its name – everything from geisha in beautiful kimonos to skyscrapers covered in neon lights
— there is so much that you can find
only in Japan, including the XXth ISPCAN International Congress on Child Abuse
The Japanese are known the world
over for their courtesy and consideration of others, and especially of visitors, their attention to detail and their superb organisational
skills. JaSPCAN and ISPCAN are looking forward to welcoming you from
September 14-17, 2014 to Nagoya, Japan for this major event.
The theme for the XXth ISPCAN International Congress will be "Towards child-centered societies: Learn
from the past, act for the future.”
Located in the centre of Japan, Nagoya is the largest city in
the Chubu region. Nagoya is also the gateway to a number of major tourist
locations, including Shirakawa-go world-heritage site, the nature region of
Kamikochi, and the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route which drives through a road
surrounded by snow walls.
Back in Nagoya you can go shopping in the city or in
its underground shopping centres. In the common district of Osu, try Hitsumabushi (chopped eel on steamed rice), Miso-katsu (deepfried pork with haccho miso paste), and deep-fried chicken
wings - all well-known dishes part of "Nagoya cuisine”. We hope you will take some time to visit this
amazing country where the ultra-new and the ancient exist side by side and
each city and region has its own distinctive history and character.
