Facility History

ICC Kyoto completed large-scale retrofitting renovations on all of our buildings in March 2014 to ensure a seismic capacity of 1.25 times the new seismic standard in the Building Standards Act. These renovations made us a safer facility with a quakeproof structure that fulfills the latest government standards.
*ICC Kyoto is a Class 2 Seismic Safety Government Facility.
