The Creative City

Yokohama, Japan's second-largest city and a world-renowned center of innovation and creativy, is the perfect location for SIGGRAPH Asia 2009's Pulse of Innovation. Its emphasis on creativity as its foundation for sustainable growth has made the city a thriving center of information technology, digital media, and the arts.

In the less than 150 years since its port opened Japan to foreign trade, Yokohama has become an energetic community of 3.6 million with a culture distinct from that of neighboring Tokyo. Its unique and attractive cityscape and diverse local resources include the historical buildings around the scenic port and the home of SIGGRAPH Asia 2009: Pacifico Yokohama, one of the world's premier convention facilities.
