Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased and honored to invite you to the 70th Anniversary Annual Congress of the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (JSOG) in Sendai from 11th (Fri) to 13th (Sun) May in 2018.  

Sendai is the birth place of the JSOG annual congress.
In 1949, a joint congress of two OG societies which had been divided into the east and the west were held in Sendai.  Both of the societies decided to integrate into one nationwide society and the academic meeting of the year was regarded as the first annual congress of JSOG.  After that, the 36th congress and the 50th congress were held in Sendai.

The venue is the same Sendai International Center as the 50th congress. A large exhibition building that was not present 20 years ago has been installed, and it is now much more convenient. The Sendai subway Tohzai (East-West) line opened two years ago, and Sendai International Center Station is directly connected to the venue.  By the subway, it takes only 5 minutes from Sendai station and 3 minutes from the center of the city to the venue, respectively.

The clear stream of the Hirose River flows through the Sendai downtown.  Matsushima, one of the three most scenic views of Japan, is located nearby, and the mountain Zao is also at a distance of a half-day trip.  There are many famous hot springs within 30 minutes’ trip by car.  Sendai has one of the most natural environments around the city in Japan. You can enjoy seafood and wonderful sake.  In addition, you will be able to enjoy a day trip to Hiraizumi, a World Heritage.  Also, there are bases of professional sport teams such as a baseball team "Rakuten Eagles", football team "Vegalta Sendai", and basketball team "89 ERS" in Sendai, so you may enjoy these sports during your stay.

I hope many doctors will make a visit to Sendai from all over the world and participate in the congress.

Congress President of the 70th Annual Congress of the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology
