私が初めて日本に来たときは、指導教員の研究分野が適していたからで、それ以外のことはあまり知りませんでした。 だから、最初は、日本語がわからず、友達もいなかったので、順応するのが大変でした。 しかし幸いなことに、国際交流センターの先生たち、指導教員、研究室のメンバーは私に大きな助けと励ましを与えてくれました。今は日本の生活や学習環境に慣れて、順調に進んでいます。中国留学生の交流会、研究室のBBQ、日中共同研究、国際交流会など、様々な活動に参加する機会があります。

This is the first time that I have the opportunity to follow my PhD course in such a developed and friendly country like Japan. I have been here for almost 2 years with many interesting memories. My supervisor is the best professor that I ever had in my study career and I have learned from him so many good things. Additionally, my Japanese friends are incredible generous and enthusiasm. They teached me a lot about Japanese language, Japanese culture as well as laboratory skills. Therefore, I have earned several knowledges not only for my research field but also for my life experience. I am in love with this beautiful country.

In general, I can say that living in Japan is one of the best fragments of time during my lifetime. Firstly, I would like to emphasize about daily living. Me and my family now live in Adachi city, around 30 mins by Metro from Juntendo campus. The living environment is quite good with many park and other facilities. The transportation also very convenient at reasonable price. I used to go around with my family to spend our precious weekend by visiting a new place of trying a new restaurant. As a Muslim, I must eat “halal” food. Halal means permissible to eat for Muslim. Despite Islam is a minority in Japan, but we can easily find halal food here. Nowadays, we can also easily find a masjid to pray especially in Tokyo area. Even Juntendo itself provide a prayer space which located at the first floor of Juntendo University Hospital.
Secondly, I will describe about my study. I learn many things in Juntendo University especially in my lab. Not only science stuff, but also the life principle of Japanese people. I learn about passion, dedication, and Integrity. The environment is warm and friendly. My senior taught me patiently and always available whenever I need help. There are a lot of new technique and skill that I learn from my senior to conduct the kind a research that I involved in. I get many obstacles and face many problems during the course. However, if those things happened, I usually asked to my senior. If my senior cannot solve the problem, then we will ask my supervisor at our regular meeting. So, I never feel stuck on the problem for a long time.
To conclude, I really enjoy my life in Japan and doing my research in Juntendo University. Doing Ph.D is not an easy thing for me, but with help from many good people, especially my Supervisor and my lab mate, I am confident that I can survive, improve, be happy, and get through this well.

My graduate program in Japan has been a great opportunity to learn a lot of new things in academic field and social life. Before I came to Japan, the International Center helped me a lot with emails regarding with documentations for scholarship and interview process with my supervisors. When I arrived in Japan, my supervisor and other team members warmly welcomed me. I could discuss and ask advice from my supervisor for my research and the co-supervisors also gave me some idea. Since it is the doctoral program, the course work is not too much, and we can self-study in the laboratory and school library. Our global health team make a group meeting from various field and countries once a month and give the opinions and advice on the presenter. This learning system helped me to get ideas for own research and improved communication skill.

As a foreign student in Japan it has been my pleasure to get an opportunity to study in the field that I always wanted and also to get to know more about the people, place and food. Every day I am learning new things both in my field and daily life that has made my life much more interesting. Although in pandemic situation many programs has been postponed but hopefully I think there is more to explore.
