Sakura has provided such a good program to facilitate overseas student or researcher to do research activity as well as collaborative research in Japan. This program gave so many advantages, but the most important point was the candidate got opportunity to learn more advance knowledge with better facilities. The candidate was also supervised by the expert to get some achievements in the research field of interest.
It's a good opportunity to continue my study in Japan. During my PHD program, I will do some research that very important not only for me but also for my country. I am glad that I have a good Professor. He is not only expert but also very concern to his students. I heard that many overseas students are unlucky because their Professors even don't care about their conditions. Some of them also have difficulty in communicating with their friends in the same lab. In my case, I am lucky to have a good friends since we can interact with each other. It really feels like second home to me.
Don't ever give up for anything even it just for seconds. Verily, along with every hardship is relief. Wherever you are, just convince yourself that it can be the second home for you.
