Registration Eligibility
Eligible registrants are:
a. Kyoto municipalities and local governments;
b. Public and private institutions with a valid physical address in Kyoto;
c. Organizations, companies, and other businesses with a valid physical address in Kyoto; and
d. Natural persons with a valid physical address in Kyoto.

All Registrants must remain in compliance with the nexus requirements at all times. The
Registry will conduct scans of registration data from time to time in order to ensure
compliance with the registration requirements. Any failure of a registration to satisfy the
Nexus Requirement will result in the name being placed on a hold for an initial period of 30
days. The sponsoring Registrar will be notified of such a hold and be given the opportunity to
correct any information. If the Registrant does not comply during the hold time frame, the
domain name may be subject to deletion.

Any entity or natural person who does not have a valid physical street address in Kyoto but
has a legitimate purpose for registering and using a “.kyoto” domain name may apply directly
to the Registry at dotkyoto@kcg.edu. Applications that meet one of the following criteria may
be approved for registration via an accredited registrar.

a. Applicants who can demonstrate a positive economic contribution to Kyoto through
business activities;
b. Applications endorsed by the Kyoto Prefectural Government; or
c. Applications endorsed by the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce, or other economic association
with a presence in Kyoto.
