A Lookback at our visit to Japan - Asmita Dogra (M. Sc. LS AB student)

We left for Japan from Mumbai on 10th Oct, 2022, with a stopover in Singapore. We landed in Narita airport, Japan on 12 Oct, 2022. From Tokyo, we took the bullet train to Kanazawa City, a journey of around five hours.

On 13 Oct, 2022, we went to Kanazawa University for our orientation program. We met Prof. Megumi Shimura, the Director of Organization of Global Affairs, and Prof. Akira Hota, the Vice Director of Organization of Global Affairs. Prof. Eida, an Associate Professor in Kanazawa University, gave us the basic idea of Japan’s Ishikawa prefecture and the places we would be visiting. Kanazawa University has departments related to conservation practice, cancer research and neuroscience research. Prof. Eida also told us that Kanazawa City is also known as the valley of gold as they develop the craft to design gold.
