ACNS 2021 will be held at Kamakura. Kamakura (鎌倉市, Kamakura-shi) is a city in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. Kamakura was the de facto capital of Japan from 1185 to 1333 as the seat of the Kamakura Shogunate, and became the nation's most populous settlement from 1200 to 1300 during the Kamakura period. Kamakura is a popular domestic tourist destination in Japan as a coastal city with a high number of seasonal festivals, as well as ancient Buddhist and Shinto shrines and temples.
