We are pleased and excited that Tokyo was selected to host 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. On this occasion, we look forward to seeing you at this 5th scientific meeting of APMF in Tokyo and share this experience together!
We are sure that you can enjoy the city of Tokyo as the meeting venue is located at the very center of Tokyo, just a corner away from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government buildings, and accessible to any destination in Tokyo.
We are proud to announce that the 5th Asia Pacific Menopause Federation (APMF) will be held in Tokyo, Japan on Oct 18 to 20, 2013.
We are planning to organize the 5th APMF so as to establish a forum and communications among experts and between experts and young doctors across diversities in region, race and lifestyle.
Over the last decades, there have been much development and accumulation of knowledge on pathophysiology of estrogen deficiency and medical management for menopausal women. Based on the idea that the eventual goal of menopausal medicine is a preventive medicine, the meeting is themed as “ Women’s Healthcare for Successful Aging Across All Life Stages”.
I sincerely hope that this meeting will serve to share our common problems and provide a state-of-the-art knowledge of menopausal medicine.
Tokyo is politically, economically and culturally the center of Japan. You can touch the heart of Japan and enjoy everything you find. We look forward to welcoming you to Tokyo.
Hideki Mizunuma, M.D.
President, 5th Scientific Meeting of APMF
As the president of the Asia Pacific Menopause Federation (APMF), I would like to extend my very warm welcome to all of you in Asia and around the world to attend the 5th APMF Scientific Meeting to be held in Tokyo, Japan, October 18-20, 2013.
Since the inauguration in 1999, APMF has grown to become a prominent association, thanks to enthusiastic and dedicated research and practices by scientists and health care professionals from both within and outside Asia Pacific region.
The Organizing Committee chaired by Professor Hideki Mizunuma, the president of Japan Society of Menopause and Women’s Health, is now making special efforts to provide the participants with a wealth of presentations and discussions, including an IMS and APMF co-hosted symposium.
We truly believe the 5th APMF Scientific Meeting will be an outstanding experience for all the participants in terms of gaining and sharing relevant knowledge in a broad range of subjects, and at the same time, to renew acquaintances and forge new or deeper bonds with your friends.
Also, Tokyo is the best place to visit: cleanliness, safety and high-technology, as well as many historical areas to visit and experience the true spirit of Japan.
We sincerely look forward to meeting you at the 5th APMF Scientific Meeting 2013 in Tokyo, Japan.

On behalf of the organizing committee members, it gives me great pleasure to extend a warm welcome to this meeting, which is to be held in Tokyo in 2013.
This meeting has been many years in the making, and we have done our absolute utmost to ensure a comprehensive scientific program, covering a wide range of issues through sessions in line with the meeting’s theme, "Women’s Healthcare for Successful Aging Across All Life Stages."
October in Tokyo means the season of magnificent fall foliage. Tokyo is not only a cosmopolitan metropolis, but also has beautiful nature. Not far away in central Tokyo are gardens and moats of the Imperial Palace. In addition, just a few hours by train will take you to the exquisite seaside historical town of Kamakura and our famous Mt. Fuji. We hope you will take advantage of the opportunities to enjoy these sights, along with the comforts of Japanese cordiality and various types of food, and of course shopping.
With our traditional heartfelt hospitality, we welcome you to Tokyo and look forward to seeing you here.
