What is your favorite thing about Hamamatsu City?

Hamamatsu museum and park are good place to enjoy.


In what way has your impression of Hamamatsu City or Japan changed since coming here?

Since it lies near the coastal region, there is a wide change in the temperature throughout the year. It holds a place for air base, so we could often see fighter jet plane and helicopter. Since it is heart to many automobile production company like HONDA. The probability of getting a placement in company is high


What attracted you to choose Shizuoka University as a place to study?

Since my home university and Shizouka university had a MoU collaboration with each other, they were possibility of dual degree programme and semester abroad program were designed. Such that I got an opportunity to come here for a conference. Which paved a way for me to get an admission in Shizouka university.


In what way did you adjust yourself to Japanese culture?

Basically I am from India, So the culture shock was not big enough. We had our space to adopt to this culture. Food adaption was little bit tough. But in the long run it was manageable


Please give a message to students or researchers in your home country who may be thinking about studying in Japan?

Japan is a complete country of positive vibration and eminent thoughts. Since it has wide variety of role in world economy, they nearly export goods to all the country around the globe. So there is better opportunity to peruse your postgraduate or undergraduate degree in japan without any problem. Since they have very good relationship around the world, this has done a justified equivalence to present world situation. Japanese were always pioneer in science and technology.
