As Luis pointed out, the Boston Summit is in Boston because both Red Hat
and Novell (formerly Ximian) have lots of GNOME developers living there.
Holding the Summit there allowed these companies to send more people.

I think a GNOME event in Kyoto would be a great idea. The Foundation has
always encouraged GNOME events in regions other than Europe and the US -
the GNOME Forum in Brazil, the GNOME Asia Summit in Beijing later this
year, the GNOME developer room in FOSDEM, and in LCA.

If you would like to see a GNOME event in Japan, the please! by all
means, start one, and request help from fellow GNOME hackers and from
the foundation.
