Kyoto, truly a Japanese treasure

The World Endoscopy Organization will have the privilege of holding ENDO 2022 in the heart of Japan. Kyoto, with its history of more than a thousand years, is considered the cultural capital of Japan. Its hospitality, culture, and traditions make this city one of Japan’s premier destinations. It is home to numerous Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, palaces, and gardens, many of which are listed collectively by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The third WEO World Congress is being organized alongside the 103rd Congress of the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society and will be held on May 13–15, 2022 at the Kyoto International Conference Center and the Prince Kyoto Takaragaike Hotel.

We are looking forward to keeping you up to date on Congress developments. Stay tuned for more details.
