The reason for choosing Japan to conduct research
As my mother is Japanese, I wished to gain more experience in Japan.
I am almost ready to start writing 2 articles for work conducted during the past 1 and a half year.
Advice to new fellows
I believe that the most important thing for new fellows to truly enjoy their stay in Japan is to keep an open mind. Two years is too short and we have a tremendous amount of learning to do. I hope that new fellows can go home having gained experience that cannot be acquired elsewhere in the world. Of course, what these are, will only be a matter of personal views. My very best wishes to all.
