「Flashback 2019」

“Minna san ogenki desuka”? How are you, everyone? I hope we stay healthy during this tough condition of pandemic Covid-19. This situation has occurred almost 1-year since the first case in December 2019, in Wuhan-China. Meanwhile, the first infected people in Japan has been confirmed in January 2020 by the Japanese government. All the people in this world are still looking forward to producing the vaccine for overcoming this situation. For continuing our life, we should ensure to renew our activities- style which recognized as “new normal” by Covid-19 protocol. In this case, we might suppress the infection spread of Covid-19. At this time, I would like to share with you some external activities as a graduate student at Tokushima University. Of course, these pictures have been taken before the pandemic.

In May 2019, I had a chance to attend the conference of the Japan Prosthodontic Society (JPS) in Sapporo, Hokkaido. I acquired a lot of knowledge particularly to update the procedures, technology, and clinical skill in prosthodontics treatment. Besides, I could enjoy seeing the magnificent city of Sapporo at night, eat delicious fish, and feel the cold weather.

In June 2019, The International Affairs of Tokushima University held a tour for international students with the theme “Understanding Japanese Culture and Business Industry”. What a lucky person I was because there were only limited seats to join this activity. We tripped to Hyogo Prefecture, the first place was “The Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake Memorial”. This place was so interesting, informative, and educating. We could look at a lot of pictures, documentary collections, and mockups regarding the earthquake situation. Moreover, we were glad to see the theater with 3D glasses and it made us more aware to prepare for the earthquake disaster. On the next trip, we visited Himeji Castle or also, known as “white heron castle”. This castle was so large, sturdy structure, and spectacular. We were not only learning about the history of Himeji Castle but also, we could perceive the fresh air and nice view surrounding the castle.

Subsequently, I had an opportunity to follow the 3MT Competition in Hiroshima as one of the representation students of Tokushima University in September 2019. It’s a precious experience that I could present my research idea in an astonishing stage. From the stunning students, I learned many things to be an outstanding public speaker such as dynamic of voice modulation, more confidence, and another communicating skill. By the way, I also suggest inserting Hiroshima City as one of your destinations if you will visit Japan. There is really convenient place for the visitor and belongs to the beautiful scenery.

These are some experiences from the outside activities, I hope the normal condition will recover as soon as possible. The pandemic of Covid-19 is not always providing hardship situation, yet it can give us a positive way if we are staying positive thinking. Stay healthy and blessed all. Thank you.
