How did Sakura Science Plan play a role in your study / research in Japan?

Sakura Science Plan , play an important role to my currently study. I joined this program in 2014, when I was in my Undergraduate Student in Indonesia, by joined the Sakura Program, I discover more about daily life in Japan, about their habits, the highly science and technology, the great Laboratory's facilities in School, the amazing Spring-8, I really love this program, that was only 7 days long but I can got many experiences that I never have before. It's only 7 days in 2014, but our friendship is still counting until now! Sakura Science is one of the reason why I decided to continue my education here. I strongly believe that not only knowledge that I can discover more, but also there are more good things in Japan I can get, and apply them to my daily life.

Please describe your comments freely related to your life in Japan.

So far, living in Japan is an amazing thing I've experienced in life. The one thing I face about living in Japan is about the language. Some people are not speaking english, and I need more time to learn Japanese. In fact that Im still learning Japanese until now, since I came here, so I can communicate with others betters, but overall, even the language barrier that we have, they are so helpful! Here, I meet a great friend, great professor who is very professional and help me on my research, also Japan government provide the great support for the scholarship for the student who need. Its not only about the person, but the facility, the system transportation, all is very well manage. The punctual time, the hard work habits, the well-manage in everything, makes me realize and got many lesson which I can applied to myself. No wonder Japan becoming one of the great contry in the world, because I experienced all by myself how the people works here, and its very good if I got influenced by many good things from Japan! Last but not least, I am personally a type of person who love culture, and Japan is very interesting country to discover about the culture, because Japan's cultural things is still exist together as the modern life and Japan can combine both beautifully! Japan I'm in love with you.!
