I am first year doctoral student in Shizuoka University, Hamamatsu campus. I completed my Graduate studies in Anna University, Tamil Nadu, India


What is your favorite thing about Hamamatsu City?

Hamamatsu having lot of natural and beautiful things and week end vacation spots. It is the city where you can find both modernized, and calm nature. Japanese neighbor are so helpful.

As a Muslim I am afraid of Halal food availability but I found lot of Halal food in most of the shop. Even my college canteen also providing Halal items nowadays.

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

As a Student in Research Institute of Electronics, it is one of the best institute of pioneering research in electronics in Japan. Nearby industries like Honda, Hamamatsu photonics have a good attraction for further carrier searching personal.


In what way did you adjust yourself to Japanese culture?

There is no need of changing anything about myself. But we should manage time, politeness and language.


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

It is the country where you can stay without any disturbance, you can enjoy a lot, study a lot, and work a lot. You can roam around the Japan but at least we need manageable Japanese language skill to survive everyday life in Japan. Now lot of peoples also start to use English in Japan.
