The hotel breakfast was a buffet.
As I expected, rice was very good; best rice and sake are produced in Niigata. They cooked omelettes at the restaurant, too. The breakfast made a good start of the day.
In the morning, a colleague/coworker of mine made a good talk. In the evening, a student of me made a poster presentation, which was also good.
For dinner, all the institute members participating in the conference, approximately 20 people, went out together to a restaurant.
Foods in Niigata are very good.
Tomorrow, I need to work on the budget of my fund, so I will drive back in the morning, although the conference continues till Friday.
