On behalf of the International Sociology of Sport Association (ISSA) I want to welcome all of you to Japan and the beautiful city of Kyoto.
The Japan organising committee has developed a wonderful program of scholarly, social and cultural events.
This will be a great opportunity to share our research,
learn about Japanese culture, and meet new friends.
We look forward to seeing you in Kyoto!
